OCA Earns BHCOE Preliminary Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Orlando, FL – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized OCA 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 consumer satisfaction 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.
