Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute Earns Three-Year Term of Accreditation from CARF International

Orlando, FL (June 27, 2024) – Demonstrating a continued commitment to the highest quality of care, the Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute has received a Three-Year Term of Accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for Inpatient and Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Programs, as well as numerous specialty programs. The prestigious designation reflects a dedication to providing evidence-based care that is individualized to each patient’s needs throughout the continuum of care.

“It’s an honor to earn the Three-Year Term of Accreditation for the hospital as a whole, and several of our specialty programs,” said Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute President Annette Seabrook. “I couldn’t be prouder of our highly trained and engaged team members. Their hard work is what helps set us apart.”

An organization receiving a Three-Year Term of Accreditation has voluntarily put itself through a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site survey that it is committed to conforming to CARF’s accreditation conditions and standards. A full list of the Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute CARF Accredited programs is here:

  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs – Hospital (Adults, Children and Adolescents)
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs – Hospital: Brain Injury Specialty Program (Adults, Children and Adolescents)
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs – Hospital: Spinal Cord Specialty Program (Adults, Children and Adolescents)
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs – Hospital: Stroke Specialty Program (Adults)
  • Interdisciplinary Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Programs (Adults)
  • Interdisciplinary Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Programs: Brain Injury Specialty Program (Adults, Children and Adolescents)
  • Interdisciplinary Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Programs: Spinal Cord Specialty Program (Adults)
  • Interdisciplinary Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Programs: Stroke Specialty Program (Adults)

The Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute is the only CARF Accredited rehabilitation hospital for children and adolescents in Central Florida. It is also the only organization in the area to receive CARF Accreditation for the specialty spinal cord program.

“We understand that providing care often extends beyond the patient, to caregivers and members of their support system,” said Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute Chief Quality Officer Dr. Jason Atienza. “Many of our team members remain connected to these families long after discharge and outpatient therapy, whether it be reuniting at our annual patient reunions or for educational events.”

The Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute treats more than 1,000 patients each year at the inpatient hospital. More than 65% of patients have a neurological condition or major multiple traumas.
