Committed to Quality
Our success depends on the quality of care provided to each and every patient. Our expert team of physicians, nurses, therapists and hospital staff is committed to providing safe, quality and cost-effective care to all patients. We strive to help every patient maximize potential and exceed personal expectations.
Our hospital complies with local, state and federal regulations as well as the accreditation standards of The Joint Commission, a leader in determining quality and safety standards for healthcare delivery.
Certification in Stroke Rehabilitation, Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Parkinson's Disease Rehabilitation
In addition to Joint Commission accreditation, our stroke rehabilitation and brain injury rehabilitation programs have earned Disease-Specific Care Certification from The Joint Commission.
Rehabilitation is crucial to the recovery process and can be the difference in patients living a lifetime with a disability versus regaining full independence. This Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission shows our hospital’s commitment to comply with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care for patients recovering from stroke.

Stroke Center of Excellence
Our hospital received the HealthSouth Stroke Center of Excellence award for 2011. This honorable designation is part of HealthSouth’s, internal recognition program to highlight top performing stroke rehabilitation programs within our network of almost 100 rehabilitation hospitals.
HealthSouth’s stroke certification is only achieved through a hospital’s tremendous rehabilitation effort, superior patient outcomes and experienced rehabilitation teams. For a stroke survivor, this award offers peace of mind in knowing that our hospital’s stroke program goes above and beyond standards and expectations to provide a vast array of stroke-related programs and services, exceeding established benchmarks in clinical programming and patient outcomes.
Fairlawn's Patient Family Advisory Council
Listening to those who entrust us with their care is one of the most effective ways to ensure that we serve patients and families to the best of our ability. Seeing the delivery of care through their eyes and then collaborating with them to improve that care is the goal of Fairlawn’s Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC). The Council, comprised of several senior management and staff members and four individuals from the community, meets every three months at Fairlawn.
In its efforts to facilitate patient and family participation in hospital care, decision making, and policy and program development, the Council utilizes the Institute for Family Centered Care core concepts of dignity and respect, information and sharing, participation and collaboration.
