CVN has reached another milestone in its mission to serve post-9/11 veterans and families with high-quality, confidential mental health care. All eligible CVN clinics have earned the top grade from industry-leading accrediting body the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
CARF International announced that six Cohen Clinics have received this recognition. The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics located in Philadelphia, PA; Clarksville, TN; as well as those in Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso and Killeen, TX have all earned the prestigious accreditation. To be eligible for a CARF survey, a clinic typically needs to be operational for a year, and all CVN Clinics nationwide are expected to be surveyed as soon as they are eligible.
“This accomplishment is a direct reflection of the commitment to quality displayed across the network. Our community-based model emphasizes programming relevant to the unique communities we are integrated in, but all of our clinics are unified by a commitment to serve and meet the highest quality standards,” said Crystal Shelton, Cohen Veterans Network Senior Vice President for Clinical Programs.
