Established in 1979, Kennedy Krieger’s inpatient unit was the first program of its kind in Maryland to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and continues to receive CARF accreditation today.

To receive this prestigious distinction, an organization must pass an in-depth review and meet rigorous guidelines for service and quality. CARF is a qualified endorsement that our program conforms to internationally recognized service standards, and is committed to excellence and the highest satisfaction for each patient and family served. 

Since then, our specialists have treated thousands of children and adolescents with rehabilitation needs due to neurological injury or illness. The Center for Brain Injury Recovery is also accredited by The Joint Commission.
