One of the most important ways that Asbury shows its dedication to quality and accountability is through its long-time participation in the only national accreditation program for continuing care retirement communities. Because of this commitment, Springhill Senior Living in Erie is among just 13 percent of continuing care retirement communities nationally accredited by CARF International. This designation means that an independent survey team has evaluated Springhill and found it in compliance with more than 600 measures of quality, including financial indicators that relate to a community’s long-term viability. Once a community has earned accreditation, it participates in a review of financial indicators each year and accommodates an on-site evaluation by a survey team every five years.
Every community in the Asbury system is CARF and EAGLE accredited.
Based in Washington, D.C.,CARF International currently accredits more than 47,000 programs and services at more than 20,000 locations on five continents.
Springhill is also proud of its affiliation with the EAGLE Accreditation Commission, which is designed for faith-based, health and social welfare organizations to enhance the quality of services provided. EAGLE utilizes voluntary self-assessment and peer review processes based upon principals and goals to promote excellence in Christian ministry.
