This certification and Gold Seal of Approval™ from The Joint Commission means that Sheltering Arms’ Stroke Rehab program complies with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care.

We are very proud to share news of this designation, which signifies our organization’s dedication to clinical excellence and reinforces that Sheltering Arms continues to be the #1 choice for physical rehabilitation in Central Virginia.

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies health care organizations and programs throughout the United States.
