In the early morning of January 16, 2020, after waiting for 40 days, we finally received from the headquarters of CARF the good news that Southwest University Hospital has officially obtained the highest three-year CARF accreditation.
In accordance with CARF standards, it has carried out comprehensive reform covering both soft environment like hospital management and service process, and hardware environment like medical equipment. As a rehabilitation facility which has consecutively passed three rounds of CARF accreditations, it has established a hierarchical rehabilitation system of three grades from Grade-III facilities, Grade-II facilities to Community Health Center.
Based on CARF standards, it has built standard accessible washrooms, set up ST rooms, and modified traditional PT rooms. It is the first facility in China which has passed three-year CARF accreditation.
