Marshall, MN – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized The READY Clinic by Southwest West Central Service Cooperative (SWWC) with a Preliminary Accreditation, acknowledging the organization as a behavioral service provider dedicated to continuous improvement in Applied Behavior Analysis. BHCOE Accreditation recognizes behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff qualifications, and promote systems that enhance these areas. BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation occurs for newer organizations or organizations preparing to meet full accreditation review within a year, prior to a full evaluation. This consists of a high-level review of organizational systems to identify areas for improvement prior to growth.
BHCOE Accreditation and BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation are the only Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)-specific accreditations. Acting as a third-party, the organization systematically measures and reports on existing quality criteria in the behavior analysis community using standardized methods and practices, and accredits only those service agencies that meet these standards.
“SWWC is extremely excited to bring The READY Clinic to our region. These services will make a profound difference for the children, families, and communities who we serve,” said Cliff Carmody, Executive Director, “I am extremely proud of, and thankful for, all the SWWC staff responsible for working so hard to make this happen! Great people, doing great things.”
“We are delighted to kick off the opening of The READY Clinic at a standard of excellence that will extend SWWC’s current provision of quality behavior-analytic treatment into the early childhood years,” said Amber Bruns, Clinical Director of Behavioral Health Services. Jennifer Bozosi, Quality Assurance Analyst for The READY Clinic, added, “Earning BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation assures that we are in an optimal position to serve new clients and stakeholders and to continue to contribute to the development of behavioral services in rural Minnesota.”
