Wyandot BHN Receives 3-Year CARF Accreditation

April 17, 2023

This week, Wyandot Behavioral Health Network learned it has received a 3-year reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF is an international organization that sets standards for mental health and other rehabilitation services. Wyandot BHN received its initial 3-year accreditation in March 2020.

During the week of March 13, CARF surveyors conducted an in-depth, on-site survey of Wyandot BHN’s services. Surveyors evaluated Wyandot BHN’s programs as well as policies, infrastructure and safety protocols. To receive accreditation, CARF surveyors assess organizations like Wyandot BHN to make sure they are providing high quality, consistent, person-centered care.

In 2023, Wyandot BHN received accreditation for two additional programs: Assertive Community Treatment and Crisis Intervention/Stabilization.

CARF surveyors noted several strengths during their visit to Wyandot BHN, including a reputation for being person-centered and trauma-informed. They also made note of Wyandot BHN’s use of technology and comprehensive, quality training for staff.

“We strive for excellence here at Wyandot BHN and we are thankful for this opportunity to receive another 3-year accreditation from CARF,” says Randy Callstrom, Wyandot BHN President & CEO. “This shows that our staff are continuing to work every day to make sure they are providing quality care to the Wyandotte County community.”
