South Florida State Hospital Receives Full Accreditation from the Joint Commission
Pembroke Pines, Florida – Correct Care Recovery Solutions (CCRS), a division of Correct Care Solutions, announced today that South Florida State Hospital has been reapproved for full Hospital Accreditation from the Joint Commission, which it has had since July 1999. This certification recognizes that South Florida State Hospital continually assesses and improves the quality of its care, treatment, and services. The commission accredits approximately 80 percent of the hospitals nationwide to improve health care by reviewing health care organizations to help ensure consistent, safe, and effective care. South Florida State Hospital is among four CCRS’ Behavioral Health Division facilities in Florida, all of which are accredited by the commission.
“The Joint Commission’s decision to fully accredit South Florida State Hospital is a testament to the quality of care that CCRS provides to its patients both in this facility and in all of our facilities around the country,” said Marta Prado, President of CCRS. “We are proud of this milestone, and providing our patients with the best possible care remains a top priority.”
CCRS has operated South Florida State Hospital since 1998, when it was selected by the Florida Department of Children and Families. CCRS designed, constructed and financed a new facility that opened in December 2000.
