Herkimer ARC receives rare New York State honor

By WKTV News

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Herkimer ARC joined 2% of agencies in New York State that provide services to people with disabilities as an accredited agency, Friday.
The "Council on Quality and Leadership" spent the week in Herkimer, evaluating safeguards related to health and measures that empower people to reach their goals.
A tremendous amount of time and work went into securing the accreditation, something that has been made more than worth it in the end.
"As our agency moves into managed care as our entire industry is doing, having this accreditation gives us a competitive edge over other providers because people will be able to pick and choose their providers," said HARC President & CEO, Kevin Crosley.

The Herkimer ARC has been working towards gaining this accreditation for the past year.
