LourdesCare at Cherry Hill Cardiac Rehab Program Earns Certification

LourdesCare at Cherry Hill, a state-of-the-art outpatient center for expert medical care, support services, and wellness classes to help patients maintain their health, has earned certification of its Cardiac Rehabilitation program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The LourdesCare program was recognized for its commitment to improving patients’ quality of life by enhancing standards of care.   The certification award is for a three-year period.

Cardiovascular rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems, such as heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, recover faster and improve their quality of life. Cardiac rehabilitation programs include exercise, education, counseling, and support for patients and their families.

LourdesCare at Cherry Hill’s Cardiac 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, such as the LourdesCare at Cherry Hill Cardiac Rehabilitation program, are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available.
