The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has recently accredited the Charlotte White Center for a third consecutive three-year period for its Residential Brain Injury Services.

This is an extensive review covering over sixteen hundred standard areas and requiring high quality performance in order to achieve a three-year certification.  The Charlotte White Center has also been recognized as a leader in the field of Brain Injury Services in other State inspections and reports.

For over thirty-eight years, Charlotte White Center’s mission has been to provide quality community health and social services for adults, children and families affected by cognitive or developmental disabilities, behavioral or mental health challenges, domestic violence, or acquired brain injuries.  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.  The reviewers noted a number of areas in which the Charlotte White Center excelled.

CWC was recognized for demonstrating a firm commitment to the provision of quality rehabilitation services and continued excellence in addressing the needs of people they serve with Acquired Brain Injuries.   CARF noted that CWC’s facilities are well designed to promote the rehabilitation needs of the people they serve, and staff demonstrate competency in the skills required to meet the needs of these individuals.   This is the third consecutive time that CWC has achieved the highest conformance standards the CARF accreditation recognizes for its services.
