Rehab center renews accreditation

DULUTH - Gwinnett Medical Center's Glancy Rehabilitation Center was recently awarded another three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

The center was also designated as a Stroke Specialty Program, identifying it as a center of excellence for stroke rehabilitation, officials said.

"We're proud to have achieved this distinction," GRC Medical Director Dr. Sunil Bhole said. "While we have always strived to provide excellent care to our patients, CARF accreditation recognizes our center's commitment to providing the highest quality rehabilitation services."

The center has maintained accreditation since 1994, when it was first earned. Glancy was first designated as a stroke program in 2006, the first facility in metro Atlanta to be so named.

"This great score is an indication of how committed we are to improving the quality of life for those we serve," said CARF International's president and CEO, Brian J. Boon, Ph.D. "The CARF surveyors made no recommendations, which is an extraordinary accomplishment, as only three percent of CARF surveys result in no recommendations."
