Seven more Bert Nash Center programs achieve accreditation

Bert Nash Center has received CARF accreditation for seven more of its programs.


Notification of the newest accreditations was received Jan. 19. Bert Nash Center achieved its initial three-year accreditation from CARF — the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities — in August 2022. Accreditation was the culmination of a multiyear effort that the Center began right before the start of the pandemic.


The current three-year accreditation now applies to Assertive Community Treatment, Crisis Intervention Programs for adults, children and adolescents, Detoxification/Withdrawal Management, and Office-Based Opioid Treatment programs. All of these programs were started in the last two years or less.


“It is a significant accomplishment that we not only offer these new programs but that they became nationally accredited within a short amount of time,” said Amy Finkeldei, Bert Nash Center Senior Director of Performance and Quality Improvement. “I would like to recognize all of our CARF team champions and our Quality Improvement team for their leadership throughout the national accreditation process as well as all of our providers who are delivering quality, person-centered care each and every day.”


This new accreditation will extend through Aug. 31, 2025, which coincides with the Center’s current accreditation.


“This achievement is an indication of your organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served,” Brian Boon, CARF President/CEO said in a letter of notification. “Your organization should take pride in achieving this high level of accreditation.”


Becoming accredited was part of the Bert Nash Center’s Integrated, Cultural, Accessibility and Strategic Plan, which includes five pillars: Service Excellence, Excellence with People, Excellence in Quality, Financial Excellence and Growth.
