Harwood Center Earns 2-Year BHCOE Reaccreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Memphis, TN – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Harwood Center with a 2-Year Reaccreditation, 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 consumer satisfaction and promote systems that enhance these areas. These areas are measured via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
BHCOE Accreditation is the only applied behavioral analysis (ABA)-specific accreditation. It provides feedback regarding clinical best practices, staff satisfaction and turnover, and consumer protection. 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.
“At Harwood Center, earning BHCOE Reaccreditation is exciting because it demonstrates our team’s commitment to providing truly top-quality behavioral services,” said Executive Director Rachel Lauletta. “We look forward to continuing to provide individualized, effective behavioral care and working together to best serve our community for years to come.”
