The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation funds and accredits care centers located at teaching and community hospitals across the country. These centers offer comprehensive, high-quality care. This elevated level of specialized care has led to longer, more productive lives for people living with cystic fibrosis.

Care centers also participate in clinical research. And they help educate doctors, nurses and health care teams about CF and the care required to help achieve and maintain the best possible health. To maintain CF Foundation accreditation, each center undergoes a review every year and periodic re-accreditation peer site visits to make sure each care center provides a consistently high standard of care.

The CF Foundation's care center network combines clinical research with medical care best practices and has been cited by the National Institutes of Health as a model of effective and efficient health care delivery for a chronic disease.
