Largo, FL - Largo Medical Center is the only HCA hospital in Tampa Bay earning a 3-year accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International. CARF is an independent, non-profit organization focused on advancing the quality of services used to meet the patient’s rehabilitative needs for the best possible outcomes.

“This remarkable achievement shows that the staff at our hospital is dedicated and committed to improving the quality of the lives of our patients each and every day,” said Anthony Degina, CEO, Largo Medical Center.

Improving that quality can be by helping a patient with a functional decline in performing activities of daily living, adapting to a disability, or rehabilitating a patient following an acute disease episode, for home and community services or for any other health and human service.

Tom Rowe, Director of Inpatient Rehabilitation at Largo Medical Center said, “Our staff earned the accreditation thanks to these services that we provide and through the documentation we commit to helping us establish a recognized pattern of excellence.

CARF is a family of organizations currently accrediting close to 50,000 programs and services at more than 22,000 locations worldwide. More than 8 million people of all ages are served annually by more than 6,500 CARF-accredited service providers.
