Unequalled by other area inpatient rehabilitation facilities, Arkansas Methodist rehab is dually accredited by both the Joint Commission as well as CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). The two accrediting bodies are considered the gold standard for hospitals and acute rehabilitation facilities. Our rehab unit is also distinguished in serving exclusively as the region's only CARF accredited Stroke Specialty Program. This designation constitutes a separate review and is awarded in recognition of the quality, commitment and outcomes in the terms of delivery of comprehensive stroke recovery and stroke prevention.


Distinctively unequaled, hospital based, dual and specialty accredited, AMMC is a proven choice for Physical Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation.
