Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Amana Healthcare, a partner of Mubadala Health, has received three-year accreditation from the American Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its highly specialized amputee rehabilitation program.

CARF’s sought-after accreditation requires the highest levels of accountability and adherence to internationally accepted standards in health and social care. Following Amana Healthcare’s rigorous audit of inpatient rehabilitation facilities, programs and services, CARF awarded the healthcare provider a three-year specialty credential for its rehabilitation program for amputated. Accreditation by CARF assures patients that the organization has undergone a thorough audit and inspection to ensure that its services are best in class.

With the new specialty accreditation, Amana Healthcare, which was the first in the UAE to receive full Intensive Intensive Rehabilitation accreditation from CARF in 2016, and the first provider in the country to be specifically accredited in stroke rehabilitation in 2019, is now, uniquely, the first provider in the UAE to receive a three-year CARF accreditation for amputee rehabilitation. This fulfills a key part of its mandate to provide residents with health care that meets the highest international standards.

In addition to CARF accreditation for amputee rehabilitation services, Amana Healthcare also obtained a three-year reaccreditation for comprehensive intensive inpatient rehabilitation and a three-year reaccreditation for its stroke rehabilitation program. .

Dr. Jason Gray, Senior Director of Amana Healthcare, said, “We are extremely proud to have received three-year accreditation for amputee rehabilitation from CARF International, one of the leading independent accrediting bodies in nonprofit in the world. At Amana Healthcare, our specialized inpatient rehabilitation center caters to patients who require intensive rehabilitation after a life-changing event, such as an amputation, and other neurological conditions.

The loss or removal of a body part is a life-altering experience and affects a person’s ability to move, work, interact with others and maintain independence, which has a significant impact on his mental health.

“At Amana Healthcare, we address more than amputation, exploring and advocating for the best possible recovery path for our patients, during a critical time in their lives. CARF’s three-year accreditation for amputee rehabilitation recognizes the work we do in this program, which in turn exemplifies our commitment to providing the highest quality patient care in the UAE.
