July 8, 2013 (Fort Lauderdale, FL) - CARF announced that Henderson Behavioral Health has been accredited for a period of three years, the highest possible level, for its behavioral health programs. The latest accreditation is the seventh consecutive Three-Year Accreditation outcome that the international accrediting commission has awarded to Henderson Behavioral Health.

It represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization maintains substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation outcome has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors that services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. Surveyors visit Henderson’s service sites, review all programs and procedures, and interview key stakeholders, including persons served. HBH is proud to note that thirty-four areas had no recommendations for improvement, indicating the organization has maximized its operations in all areas of service delivery

Henderson Behavioral Health is South Florida’s oldest and largest, not-for-profit community-based behavioral healthcare system with offices in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Henderson Behavioral Health CEO, Dr. Steven Ronik noted, "Receiving yet another, three-year accreditation outcome really validates the work we do on behalf of our clients. Every day, we continue to provide client-centered, evidence-based behavioral healthcare. It is very gratifying to earn this recognition for our efforts."

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.
