As of November 2021, Haymarket Center has been renewed as a CARF-accredited treatment facility for three years, for the 8th consecutive time. This accreditation applies to our Residential and Outpatient Treatment services, as well as our Prevention programs and our governance.
CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services. Through accreditation, CARF assists service providers in improving the quality of their services, demonstrating value, and meeting internationally recognized organizational and program standards.
CARF assesses each organization for this accreditation, which includes an on-site visit, and during a time of COVID-19, a series of virtual interviews as part of its survey. During our 2021 survey, CARF found that Haymarket Center had over 100 areas of strength, which is well above average for treatment facilities.
We would like to thank all the members of the staff and Board of Directors involved in this process for helping us achieve this monumental accomplishment. Our CARF Accreditation is an indication of our commitment and dedication to improving the lives of the people we serve at Haymarket.
We are so proud to serve our community with our mission to provide the most comprehensive care, with access 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, regardless of ability to pay. With this new accreditation, we will continue that mission as the provider of choice in the greater Chicago area.
