SOMC Cardiac Rehab Obtains AACVPR CertificationPosted on 10/08/2019
The Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Southern Ohio Medical Center has received re-certification from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). SOMC Cardiac Rehab was recognized for its commitment to improving a patient’s quality of life by enhancing standards of care.
“Cardiovascular programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems recover quickly and improve their quality of life,” Keri Imm, nurse manager of SOMC Cardiac Rehab said. “Our staff is committed to helping our patients recover and providing support for them and their families.”
To earn this accreditation, the SOMC Cardiac Rehab program participated in an application process that required extensive documentation of its practices. As the only peer-review accreditation process, AACPR Program Certification is designed to review individual programs for adherence to the highest standards and guidelines developed and published by a group of professional societies in the field. Certification is valid for three years.
