Mariners Hospital Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program Certified by Industry Leader
Mariners Hospital is proud to announce the certification of its Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The hospital was recognized for its commitment to improving quality of life by enhancing standards of care.
Cardiovascular programs are designed to help people with heart disease live longer, control symptoms, stop or reverse damage, lessen the physical and emotional effects, and improve stamina, strength and confidence. For people with cardiac problems such as heart attack, angina, cardiac surgery, and heart failure, individualized treatments plans include exercise, nutrition education, stress management, and encouragement and support for patients and their families.
The hospital’s Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program participated in an application process that required extensive documentation of the program’s practices. AACVPR Program Certification is the only peer-review accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by AACVPR and other professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR Program Certification Committee, and Certification is awarded by the AACVPR Board of Directors.
AACVPR-certified programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. AACVPR Program Certification is valid for three years. Mariners Hospital’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program also is accredited.
Mariners Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation services are available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Patients must have a prescription from their physician. For more information, call 786-434-1632.
