At Corpus Christi Rehabilitation Hospital, our patient care efforts were ranked in the Top 10% of inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationally in 2014 and 2015. Our efforts were cited as being patient-centered, efficient, effective and timely.
The ranking was provided by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a not-for-profit corporation that was developed with support from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation research, a component of the U.S. Department of Education. The UDSMR maintains the world’s largest database for medical rehabilitation outcomes. Through UDSMR, the hospital collaborated with peers throughout the United States to share information and establish best practices for everyone across the nation.
Advanced Stroke Certification
Corpus Christi Rehabilitation Hospital has received The Joint Commission’s disease-specific certification for stroke rehabilitation, which signifies the hospital’s dedication to developing better results for stroke patients. The award is given after a rigorous on-site review by an expert evaluator.
The award recognizes how committed we are and how well we provide rehabilitation following a stroke. Through our services, we want to provide hope and quality of life to our community members who have experienced this debilitating event.
Certification through the Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Program is voluntary and available only to stroke programs in Joint Commission-accredited acute care hospitals. Certification requirements address three main areas:
- Compliance with consensus-based national standards
- Effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to manage and optimize care
- Organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities
