August 11, 2022
CARF International announced Southwestern Medical Center (SWMC) has been accredited for a period of three years for its acute rehabilitation program. The latest accreditation is the ninth consecutive three-year accreditation the international accrediting body has given to SWMC.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation given 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.
Southwestern Medical Center has been providing inpatient rehabilitation services to southwest Oklahoma for 27 years. They provide physical, occupational and speech therapy services to a variety of patients, age 18 or older who have experienced the debilitating effects of an acute injury, impairment, or illness. The goal is to help each individual function as independently as possible through specialized treatment programs for conditions including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury, neurological conditions, amputation, and trauma.
