MCH Earns COA Reaccreditation

Methodist Children’s Home President Tim Brown received word today (August 10) that the Council on Accreditation (COA) has granted reaccreditation to MCH.

Mr. Brown was notified of the reaccreditation in a letter from Mr. Richard Klarberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of COA.

“Reaccreditation is a tremendous achievement that demonstrates that your organization is recognized as a provider that continues to successfully implement high performance standards and, as such, is delivering the highest quality services to all of its stakeholders,” wrote Mr. Klarberg.

According to the announcement, the COA reaccreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of both an organization’s administrative operations and its service delivery practices. All are measured against national standards of best practice. In addition, they confirm that the services are provided by a skilled and supported workforce and that all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.

“Of course we are delighted to receive this well-deserved and wonderful news of re-accreditation by the Council on Accreditation,” Mr. Brown said. “However, I am even more impressed and humbled by the teamwork and the extraordinary efforts of our staff and Board of Directors who contributed valiantly to this achievement in the midst of a number of other time constraints, demands on their personal time and interrupted business schedules. I am very proud of our staff and this recognition which I believe will become even more significant in the next few years.”

Founded in 1977, COA is an independent not-for-profit international accreditor of the full continuum of community-based behavioral health care and human service organizations.

We will post additional information about our reaccreditation in the coming days.
