Pacific Northwest Behavior Earns 3-Year BHCOE Accreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Spokane, WA – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Pacific Northwest Behavior with a 3-Year 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. These areas are measured with a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, an anonymous staff satisfaction survey and an anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.
BHCOE Accreditation is the only applied behavior 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.
“We speak of our BHCOE accreditation with pride as we are determined to become a regional leader for the dissemination of ABA best practices, new treatment technologies, and a values-driven approach to treatment,” said owners Stephen Sykora and Kourtney Pickens. “By utilizing the most current, data-driven research, our team provides individualized and thoughtful services to enhance the lives of those we serve.”
