The accreditation, the highest level that can be given to an inpatient rehabilitation facility, demonstrates Mercy’s commitment to the international standards for quality and CARF standards.
“Our patients and the quality of care we provide them are always top of mind with anything we do,” said Donna Flannery, administrator of Mercy Rehab Hospital St. Louis. “The renewed accreditation shows we are proactively taking steps to make sure we are continually improving.”
