The Columbus Organization Receives 4th Consecutive CARF Accreditation

June 23, 2021 GMT

BLUE BELL, Pa., June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With intense scrutiny placed on the quality of healthcare service delivery, accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has long been considered the highest honor a care coordination company can receive. The Columbus Organization, a nationally recognized provider of services for individuals with intellectual/developmental (IDD) and behavioral health challenges, today announced that they have received their fourth consecutive 3-year accreditation from CARF. Any organization receiving a three-year CARF accreditation has engaged in a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of auditors that its processes and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. This accreditation decision demonstrates substantial conformance to the CARF quality standards.

Jeff Klimaski, CEO and President, commented, “This is a testament to the incredible work, passion, and dedication to excellence that every member of our Columbus team demonstrates. The accreditation is a critical validation for Columbus, and we are proud that we have been able to meet the highest quality standards. We also see this as an endorsement of the innovative work we have undertaken to evolve care coordination and change the trajectory for so many individuals in need.”
