The Cardiac Rehab at Atrium Medical Center was recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life by enhancing standards of care.
Cardiovascular rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems (heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, etc.) recover faster and improve their quality of life. Atrium’s three-phase program includes exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.
Atrium’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program participated in the one-month application process which required extensive documentation of the program’s practices. The AACVPR program certification is the only peer-reviewed accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed by the AACVPR and other professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR National Certification Committee and certification is awarded by the AACVPR Board of Directors.

AACVPR program certification is valid for three years.
