The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) at Silver Cross Hospital, also known as the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, has recently received 3-year CARF accreditation, according to a news item from the hospital.
This is the sixth time that the inpatient rehabilitation program has received Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International accreditation, and it ensures that the hospital offers programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
“Attainment of CARF accreditation assures our patients that Silver Cross is an organization that values them so much that it has voluntarily agreed to adhere to vigorous standards and open the specialty up to intense scrutiny. As a result of this exclusive accreditation, patients can be confident that we have made a commitment to continually enhance the quality of the services and programs it provides to our patients while focusing on patient satisfaction,” says Geoff Tryon, vice president of operations at Silver Cross Hospital, in the news story posted on the hospital’s website.
Silver Cross Hospital and RIC provide rehabilitation services at New Lenox Hospital on an inpatient basis, and at four outpatient care settings.
“Our goal is to help patients achieve a maximum level of function as quickly as possible,” states Matthew Boebel, administrative director of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross Hospital, in the news item.
“Each patient participates in an intensive, individualized treatment plan to meet the goals set by the patient, family and therapy team. We also encourage participation from family and friends in the treatment process, which includes goal setting, therapy and education,” he adds.
