Our dedication to providing quality care through medical expertise and technology is consistently making headlines. Here are just a few of our recent achievements:
Hospital’s Cardiovascular Rehabilitation program recertified
The Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program at HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital has been recertified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). With the recertification, St. Joseph's was recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life with enhanced standards of care.
Cardiovascular rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems such as heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, congestive heart failure and cardiac stents recover faster and improve their quality of life. Programs include exercise, medication and nutrition counseling and support for patients and their families.
The AACVPR program certification is a peer-reviewed accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by the AACVPR National Certification and other professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR National Certification Committee and certification/recertification is awarded by the AACVPR board of directors. The program certification is valid for three years.
