Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital, 850 S. 5th Street, has been accredited by CARF since 1983. CARF is an independent, non-profit accrediting organization, which works to ensure that high standards of care and quality are met by its accredited inpatient rehabilitation providers.

“CARF accreditation is the gold standard for rehabilitation providers,” says Michael Spigel, PT, MHA, President & CEO of Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network. “Organizations receiving accreditation undergo a rigorous peer-review process and demonstrate to a team of surveyors that their program is of the highest quality. Our six accreditations are but one way we separate Good Shepherd from other rehabilitation hospitals and units.”
