CARF International announced that UnityPoint Health – Allen Hospital has been accredited for a period of three years for its inpatient acute rehab unit.

It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
