Deerfield is accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, an international, non-profit organization. Providers that meet their standards have demonstrated a commitment to being among the best available. Deerfield has been accredited since 2003, joining approximately 10% of senior living communities holding this distinction. Only 3% of communities earn Deerfield’s “no recommendations” for changes from the CARF surveyors.
In 2019, Deerfield achieved a deficiency-free Health Care Survey report for the fourth year in a row, awarding our community a five star rating.
Each year Fitch Ratings reviews the financial profile of Deerfield and provides us with a rating due to our municipal bond financing. We are thrilled to announce that in its last review, Fitch awarded Deerfield an “A” rating. This is the first time in our history that we have achieved this status. As of today, only 15 – less than 1% – of senior living facilities in the United States hold this rating. Our solid financial performance is the culmination of deliberate planning, monitoring, and good management practices over the past two decades.
