Article
Hebrew Rehabilitation Center (HRC), an integral part of Hebrew SeniorLife and an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, received re-accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) following a survey conducted in November 2015.

Hebrew Rehabilitation Center’s three year re-accreditation applies to its post-acute care services at locations in Boston and Dedham. In Boston, HRC offers a Medical Acute Care Unit (MACU) and a Rehabilitative Services Unit (RSU). In Dedham, its Rehabilitative Services Unit is located on the campus of NewBridge on the Charles, a continuing care retirement community.

Re-accreditation, which extends through January 31, 2019, is another indication of HRC’s dedication and commitment to improving the lives of persons served. The service delivery, personnel and documentation demonstrated conformance to the high standards CARF establishes for rehabilitation facilities. As noted by one of the surveyors, “HRC is recognized for high levels of satisfaction from patients at both campuses.”

Hebrew Rehabilitation Center has held accreditation status by CARF since 2001 with the opening of the RSU in Boston. HRC expanded its post-acute care options in 2004 with the opening of the MACU and in 2009 with the opening of the RSU in Dedham.

A trusted provider and partner with several Boston area hospitals, Hebrew Rehabilitation Center delivers high quality health care that meets the needs of older adults following an acute hospital stay. A team of highly skilled professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists, pharmacists, social workers and dietitians, provide care to more than 2,500 patients annually. Physicians representing dozens of medical specialties are available for consultation to ensure all patients’ medical needs are addressed during their stay.

About Hebrew Rehabilitation Center
Hebrew Rehabilitation Center, an integral part of Hebrew SeniorLife and an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, provides both post-acute rehabilitative care and long-term care at two locations in Boston and Dedham. Our goal is always the same – to help individuals regain as much independence as possible. That independence can mean going home after recovering from an illness or surgery, or setting meaningful goals as a long-term care resident. At HRC we are redefining the experience of aging by respecting resident and patient choice and working to improve the quality of life for people as they age.
