PORT Health earns CARF International three-year accreditation

Posted 01-04-2021

Greenville, NC –   CARF International announced that PORT Health has been accredited for a period of three years for its Outpatient Clinical Treatment and Rehabilitation Program.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded 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 and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

PORT Health is a not-for-profit organization with offices throughout eastern North Carolina. It has been providing in-patient and out-patient clinical care for mental illness and substance use patients since 2004.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
