Children’s Hospital of Michigan has been accredited for another period of three years for its Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) International.

CARF accreditation represents the highest level of recognition that can be awarded to an organization, and shows the Children’s Hospital of Michigan’s substantial conformance to the agency's standards.

Children’s Hospital of Michigan underwent an internal examination of its program and business practices and completed an on-site survey. The hospital demonstrated to a team of surveyors its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.
