HealthSouth Rehab earns Gold Seal of Approval
SARASOTA -- HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota has earned certification for disease-specific care for its hip fracture, stroke rehabilitation and spinal cord rehabilitation programs.
The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval was awarded to the hospital for compliance with national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care, said Marcus Braz, CEO of HealthSouth Sarasota in a news release.
To earn these certifications, the spinal cord injury and brain injury rehabilitation programs underwent an extensive, onsite evaluation by The Joint Commission reviewers. The programs were evaluated through an assessment of program processes, ability to evaluate and improve care within its own organization, and interviews with patients and staff.
