Marion General Hospital’s cardiac rehabilitation department has been awarded program certification by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).

The AACVPR is a national multidisciplinary association dedicated to the improvement of clinical practice, promotion of scientific inquiry, and advancement of education for the benefit of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation professionals and the patients they serve. It is the only organization that certifies cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs.

Valid for three years, the program certification is a symbol of meeting essential standards for quality patient care in cardiac rehabilitation. 

MGH’s cardiac rehabilitation department, which began in 1987, averages 300 patient visits a month.
