Northern Maine General Awarded three-year CARF accreditation

Eagle Lake -

EAGLE LAKE, Maine — CARF International announced that Northern Maine General (NMG) has been accredited for a period of three years for its Community Services, Community Integration programs at Powell Day Program and the Philip Blanchette Residential facility.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

NMG is a nonprofit organization with offices at Eagle Lake and Caribou. It has been providing health and social services in the Aroostook County area since 1907 when the organization began. Its mission is to provide individuals with the highest standard of care and help all of the people served enjoy life to the fullest potential.
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
