Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute ensures that patients receive the highest quality care by adhering to the principles set forth by the Institute of Medicine - care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable.
The quality structure includes Program Advisory Councils (PACs) to uphold these principles across the rehabilitation continuum. PACs oversee quality for hospital-based rehabilitation, stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, cancer rehabilitation/ lymphedema, spine care and ambulatory programs.
The Institute's commitment to quality improvement, safety and patient satisfaction has been recognized by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Recently, the Institute received the highest level of accreditation for its Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, Stroke Specialty Program, Brain Injury Inpatient Rehabilitation Program and Spinal Cord System of Care.
Accreditation represents substantial conformance to a rigorous set of industry-driven standards. The CARF surveyors mentioned quality as one of Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute's strengths:
"It is very evident that the organization is committed to providing high quality programs to the persons served through the dedication of an enthusiastic, tenured staff. This commitment is evident from the top down - from the executive leadership, who are committed to providing the necessary resources that support the delivery of care, to the service providers."
