Beaumont earns coveted accreditation…again!

 

For 12 years, Beaumont has been able to proudly display its certification by the CARF-CCAC (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and Continuing Care Accreditation Commission). Nationwide, only about 300 of the more than 2,000 Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) are accredited through CARF-CCAC’s rigorous evaluation process. Accredited communities like Beaumont that are able to display this “stamp of approval” are positioned well ahead of the pack – an important distinction when researching and considering retirement communities.

Applying for re-accreditation is a process not for the faint of heart. It includes a lengthy survey process, a rigorous three-day inspection visit, and a review of thousands of pages documenting financial strength, strategic management, emergency preparedness, governing operations and performance improvement, to name but a few.

In Beaumont’s case, the surveys were directed primarily to residents as the community is resident-owned and resident-governed – after all, who better to provide objective commentary on quality of life, programs and services? Specific areas of strength cited in the evaluation report were Beaumont’s exemplary financial condition as compared with the industry, its unique and effective self-governing structure, resident engagement, employee development, and superior quality of healthcare services. In all, Beaumont met or exceeded more than 700 standards set by CARF-CCAC, a repeat performance well worth noting!
