CARF, the international accrediting body, has awarded Magic City Enterprises its three-year accreditation, its thirteenth consecutive since 1982.
Magic City received a three-year accreditation through June of 2021. An organization receiving a CARF three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.
“Receiving our thirteenth CARF accreditation reflects Magic City’s continued commitment to providing the people we support with the best opportunities for a high quality of life in our community,” said Jeff Gardner, President and CEO of Magic City Enterprises.
During the onsite survey on July 16-18, 2018, surveyors found many areas of strength:
- High levels of satisfaction from people receiving services.
- Staff members and leadership clearly embracing MCE’s Purpose, Mission, and Core Values.
- People receiving services are involved in the community.
- The board of directors is composed of a strong representation of the community at large.
- The organization has a strong, cultural competency and diversity plan.
- The use of technology has created many efficiencies that allow for staff members to focus on assuring the organization’s mission.
- Staff members and leadership are very engaged and show a strong commitment to continuous improvement.
Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, 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.
