Officials with the Hospitals of Providence announced that their Sierra Campus has been again accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its Inpatient Rehabilitation Program and additionally now accredited for its Stroke Specialty Program.
“Meeting and achieving the high standards set forth by CARF, to include our stroke care, validates the high quality of care we are providing our patients,” said Rob J. Anderson, Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus.
“This recognition is a testament to our team’s commitment to helping our patients reach their goals, regain functionality and return home to an independent living and increased quality of life.”
The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit provides stroke patients and patients suffering from injuries or life altering events with advanced rehabilitative care and expertise to promote recovery and increase functionality.
“When recovering from a stroke or serious injury, it is critically important to have an interdisciplinary team with the expert knowledge to promote recovery and healing,” said Dr. Jose Porras, Internal Medicine Specialist and Medical Director for the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at the Sierra Campus. “Our goal is to provide our patients with the best possible outcomes and help ensure they return to the activities they enjoy doing.”
Hospital officials add that the newly added Stroke Specialty Program assists stroke patients and their loved ones throughout the recovery process and encourages independent living, wellness and support. The program provides ongoing access to information, services and resources to enhance and improve stroke survivors’ quality of life.
The Stroke Specialty Program offers stroke prevention education to the community through various community events and hosts a virtual Stroke Support Group for caregivers and survivors the second Wednesday of every month.
