The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities have struck an agreement intended to eliminate duplicate surveys of freestanding medical rehabilitation hospitals and rehab units in acute care hospitals.

Initially, JCAHO will recognize CARF accreditation of rehab hospitals seeking Joint Commission accreditation. After Aug. 1, recognition will be expanded to include CARF- accredited rehab units in medical-surgical hospitals.
