Is that a direct quote or are you just paraphrasing what they say? If it's the latter, no quotes are needed. If its the former, I think it'd look better if you just paraphrased it and then acknowledged in the bibliography that your research did include a website (there are rules
on how to cite them)... but that's just me.
what he said. if you're quoting word for word, you must use quotes. mel if you want to write the sentence in the style you posted, just paraphrase/reword it and then you don't need the quotation marks.
example (quotes)- you still need to reword the first phrase:
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, CORFs must "provide coordinated outpatient diagnostic, therapeutic, and restorative services, at a single fixed location, to outpatients for the rehabilitation of injured, disabled or sick individuals" (in-text citation depending on citation style).
example (without quotes):
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) states that CORFs are responsible for providing diagnostic, therapeutic and restorative services at a coordinated, fixed location for the rehabilitation of the sick, debilitated, or otherwise injured individuals.
i feel the original sentence has too many commas and unnatural pauses (at least when reading it) however and would probably split it up into two sentences (especially if you're trying to fill out the word count/fatten up the paper)
