As more patients seek quality healthcare, particularly for rehabilitation of injury or chronic condition, accreditation stands as the key indicator of quality and excellence. CARF accreditation signals the gold standard for rehabilitation of a disability or injury such as stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and catastrophic accidents. An outstanding report from commission representatives accompanies the accreditation of CMRC Saudi Arabia by CARF.
The commission found that leadership at all levels of the organization is committed to the delivery of high-quality services to their patients. This active leadership encourages and motivates staff while also placing an emphasis on learning.
Notably, the report also considers a patient-centered approach that was evident during the facility survey. The report highlights the qualified medical directors at CMRC Saudi Arabia who are "highly respected, actively involved in care and demonstrate knowledge and use of the evidence-based practice to ensure currency in medical practice." They are also focused on the development of ongoing relationships with the greater medical community, staff educational activities, program development, and strategic planning.
The report goes on to emphasize the organization's interdisciplinary rehabilitation teams as the "true strength" due to their "quality of work, individual passion, enthusiasm, expertise, and caring," which ensures the optimum quality of life for each patient.
The Group Chief Executive office for CMRC, Dr. Howard Podolsky commented on this significant achievement: "CMRC-KSA is keenly focused on providing world-class post-acute rehabilitation services to the patients and families of the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In keeping with this commitment, I am incredibly pleased and honored to have CMRC-KSA recognized and fully accredited by CARF as the gold standard for international rehabilitation accreditation.
