Accreditations

St. Luke's Rehabilitation Institute is committed to delivering high-quality services to patients and community members.  That commitment is continuously validated by re-accreditations from Joint Commission and CARF International as the "good housekeeping" seal of approvals for hospitals and rehabilitation organizations.  St. Luke's has had accreditation from Joint Commission and CARF International since 1998.

 

Joint Commission logo 

 

The Joint Commission is an independent, not for profit organization, whose mission is to improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public. The Joint Commission is governed by a board that includes physicians, nurses and consumers.

The Joint Commission sets the standards by which health care quality is measured in America and around the world. To maintain and earn accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by a team of Joint Commission health care professionals, at least once every three years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization’s performance in areas that affect your care. Accreditation may then be awarded based on how well the organizations met Joint Commission standards.  

If you have any concerns regarding patient safety or the quality of care at St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute, you may contact St. Luke’s administration at (509) 473-6298 and/or the Joint Commission. To report a concern to the Joint Commission, visit the "report a complaint" section of their website or call 1-800-994-6610.
