“This CARF decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization,” said Joel Szirtes, Chief Operating Officer of HealthCall of Detroit, “and demonstrates our organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards.”
Organizations that receive a three-year accreditation from CARF have undergone a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an onsite visit, their commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
“We’ve always believed in person-centered, quality in-home care services,” adds Szirtes. “Our team of experienced professionals is committed to helping people accomplish their recovery goals and achieve the highest quality of life.
