Lynchburg, Virginia — January 2013

Lynchburg, VA — 1/31/2013 — CARF—CCAC announced that Westminster Canterbury, Lynchburg has been awarded a five-year term of accreditation. This latest accreditation is the seventh consecutive 5-year term that CARF—CCAC accreditation has been awarded to Westminster Canterbury.

An organization receiving a five-year term of accreditation has voluntarily put itself through a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site survey that it is committed to conforming to CARF—CCAC’s accreditation conditions and standards. Furthermore, an organization that earns CARF—CCAC accreditation is commended on its quest for quality programs and services.

“Our residents, Board of Trustees and staff all contributed to a successful review,” said Sean Huyett, CEO, “and we applaud their efforts to help us demonstrate the excellence of retirement services that we take great pride in delivering on a daily basis.”

Westminster Canterbury is a non-profit organization at 501 V.E.S Road, Lynchburg, VA. It has been providing continuing care retirement services in the Lynchburg area since 1980.

The Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC) was founded in 1985 as the nation’s only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities and similar organizations. In January 2003, CCAC merged with the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), a nonprofit accreditor founded in 1966 that touches close to 6 million individuals served in a wide range of human service organizations.
