Middletown Regional Hospital's (MRH) Cardiac Rehabilitation Program has earned a third consecutive three-year certification from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). Certification recognizes only those programs that meet AACVPR's rigorous requirements for standards of care.

"The quality of our nurses, combined with one-on-one care and our staff's dedication to improving our patients' quality of life, is truly what sets our program apart. AACVPR recertification confirms our passion for providing the finest care possible."
