Patient Care Facility Accreditation Guide

October 2023


Announcing and Promoting Your Accreditation

We know that once you gain your ABC Accreditation, you’ll be proud to announce your achievement to your patients, referral sources and insurers. Check out the following tools, all designed to help you show your ABC pride.

Logo/Advertising Language

Once you are accredited, we encourage you to use the ABC logo on your facilities’ business cards, letterhead, invoices, website and marketing materials. It’s easily accessible through your facility’s MY ABC account. Just log in to your account and download either a hi-res or a lo-res version of the ABC Accreditation logo.

Press Releases

We encourage you to publicize your accreditation status and provide a sample press release in your accreditation notification packet. You can also download a copy of the sample press release by logging on to your facility’s MY ABC account and accessing the online Resource Pack.

Public Information Requests

Upon request, ABC will release your accreditation status, accredited programs, and accreditation dates to the public. This information is released without written authorization or notification. Accredited facility information is also available online in the ABC Directory.

You must take care to accurately describe the program(s), service(s) and affiliate office(s) for which your facility is ABC accredited. You must abide by the ABC Logo Guidelines when using the logo to advertise your accreditation status to the general public. Any false or misleading advertising indicates noncompliance and will result in penalties up to and including revocation of your accreditation.

The Logo Guidelines will be sent to you in your accreditation notification packet. Any location that has not yet received accreditation (new affiliate locations or locations still in the application process) must state in all forms of advertising and marketing that they are NOT ABC Accredited.
