PCHS awarded CARF Accreditation

CARF International announced that Peninsula Community Health Services has been accredited for a period of three years for its outpatient Mental Health Services. The latest accreditation is the first three-year accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to PCHS.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

PCHS is a nonprofit organization with offices at 230 E. Marydale, Soldotna. It has been providing Comprehensive, Integrated Medical, Dental and Behavioral Health in the Kenai/Soldotna area since 2008.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. For more information about the accreditation process, please visit the CARF website at www.carf.org.
