Shore Rehabilitation Institute Achieves CARF Accreditation

Shore Rehabilitation Institute has earned accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in recognition of the facility’s outstanding Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs for both Stroke Services and Brain Injury.

Shore Rehabilitation has been committed to achieving and exceeding quality measures put forth by CARF, a national organization that establishes guidelines and high standards for quality of care. Each year, quality measures are reviewed and new standards are developed to keep pace with changing conditions and current consumer needs.

The facility was one of only three percent of rehabilitation facilities surveyed that met all standards, joining only a handful of CARF-accredited Brain Injury rehabilitation providers in the state. This recognition extends through August of 2017.

“I am grateful to all our physicians and team members for working tirelessly to improve access to high-quality Brain Injury and Stroke rehabilitation for our community,” says Amit Mohan, executive director of Shore Rehabilitation Institute. “CARF accreditation of our Brain Injury and Stroke program means that the persons who suffer with Stroke and Brain Injury have access to high quality rehabilitation right here in our community. Our physicians and team members are committed to providing state of the art and very best neurological rehabilitation to our community.”

What does this mean for the community and for patients? This national accreditation means that the facility and physicians practicing at Shore Rehabilitation have passed rigorous, in-depth reviews of services and meet CARF’s guidelines for service and quality. CARF’s survey found that Shore Rehabilitation excelled in: extensive staff training, educational outreach programs about disabilities, thorough data analysis, progressive leadership, and positive relationships between staff and patients, as well as their families.

“This significant achievement is further indication of the organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of lives of the persons served,” said Brian J. Boon, Ph.D., president and CEO of CARF International.

The 40-bed acute rehabilitation facility, located adjacent to Ocean Medical Center in Brick, offers a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient services, and is fully accredited by the Joint Commission as an acute rehabilitation hospital, providing a broad spectrum of rehabilitation services.

Shore Rehabilitation Institute was also named 2014 Hospital of the Year by NJBIZ Healthcare Heroes and was selected among the Best Places to Work by NJBIZ for the past two years.
