In this role, Darcy Brazzle oversees regulatory compliance and accreditation for Caron Treatment Centers.
Under Darcy’s leadership, Caron has established industry-leading quality markers and compliance processes that help our organization to evaluate programs in real time and, more importantly, identify improvement areas to make Caron stronger and more effective. That continues to be Darcy's goal: maintaining and improving Caron’s commitment to quality and patient satisfaction.
In meeting that goal, she monitors Caron Treatment Centers’ compliance with both federal and state law and regulations, such as data privacy laws and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), for example. She also assures that Caron adheres to all corporate laws and regulation. She recommends and implements improvements for clinical and non-clinical operations and oversees Caron’s outcome measurements, such as patient satisfaction, and policies and procedures for every department.
Darcy came to Caron as Director of Compliance in 2017 and took on her current role in 2019. She has more than 22 years of experience in the behavioral health field in a variety of positions. She began her career as a behavioral health tech and moved into roles as a counselor, clinical supervisor, clinical director, admissions director, safety director, chief operating officer, and compliance officer. Those varied jobs have given her an in-depth understanding of what the work entails and what is needed to maintain and improve practices and processes.
She has a Bachelor of Science in prelaw and criminal justice from West Chester University and a Master of Business Administration from St. Joseph’s University.
Caron is an industry leader and we work to make sure that we continue to lead the industry in providing the best and most effective behavioral health and addiction treatment. My heart is in this field and the work that I do, because even though I don’t provide direct care, the work we do in my department means that our patients receive the highest quality treatment and services in a safe environment and our employees can do their jobs to the best of their abilities.”
