CORAL GABLES, Fla., July 18, 2023 — Acorn Health announced today it has earned full accreditation for all of its 71 centers from the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE), extending its current accreditation for two more years. This marks Acorn Health’s third continuous accreditation since it was founded in 2018. Accreditation from BHCOE recognizes excellence within the applied behavior analysis (ABA) industry in the areas of quality, staffing and satisfaction and signifies an organization’s commitment to effective, sustainable treatment.
“I’m incredibly proud of this team and the clinical care Acorn Health provides to our clients and their families,” said Krista Boe, chief clinical officer. “Reaccreditation helps to validate that we truly are providing high-quality ABA services, which is of utmost importance to us.”
Prior to being awarded full reaccreditation, each Acorn Health location underwent rigorous auditing that included anonymous surveying of staff and clients, as well as observations.
According to Boe, accreditation demonstrates Acorn’s commitment to providing high-quality, effective treatment. “It ensures we operate in a way that provides sustainable access to services and reinforces that those services adhere to the highest level of standards in ABA therapy.”
“Families and other stakeholders can have an extra layer of assurance and confidence in our services knowing we have undergone accreditation by a third-party,” she adds. “This continued accreditation serves as an objective measure of our expertise and proficiency, confirming we follow industry-leading practices and aim for delivering best-in-class care.”
