CARF-LogoBridgewell is proud to announce we have been awarded a Three-Year CARF Accreditation.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

For more information about the accreditation process, please visit the CARF website at www.carf.org.

In additional licensing news, we have had another very positive DDS Licensing Survey. DDS shared their findings last month and they were extremely complimentary. Bridgewell received over a full page of commendations!

We renewed our 2 year license – the maximum that is achievable. Our overall agency rating is over 91% compliance. We received a small number of recommendations that we will need to work on improving but overall, this was a very positive outcome.

To our employees:  Thank you for the very positive and effective work you do every day; you play a significant role in the great team we have at Bridgewell.
