Our inpatient pediatric rehabilitation unit within the Division of Rehabilitation Medicine is accredited by the Joint Commission. Since 1997 we have been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for our comprehensive integrated inpatient rehabilitation and pediatric specialty care program. In October of 2018, we received additional accreditation for our cancer and pain specialty programs. We are the first in the world to receive a CARF accreditation for pediatric cancer rehabilitation, and only the second in the world to receive a CARF accreditation for pediatric interdisciplinary pain rehabilitation.

We work with your whole family.

Our program is one of only three accredited pediatric rehabilitation programs in Ohio. This achievement reflects our dedication and commitment to meeting national rehabilitation standards. Our goal is to provide the highest quality care for your child.
