The staff of CHI Memorial’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention Program celebrate certification by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

CHI Memorial, Chattanooga, TN, received certification for its cardiac rehabilitation program from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).  This certification recognizes CHI Memorial’s commitment to improving patients’ quality of life by enhancing standards of care.

CHI Memorial’s Cardiovascular rehabilitation is program designed to help people with cardiovascular problems (e.g., heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery) recover faster and live healthier.  The program includes exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.

A multidisciplinary team of physiologists, nurses, and nutritionists works with each patient to design a customized exercise program and behavior modification plan to reduce cardiovascular risk factors.  Some programs are completely or partially covered by insurance; others may be paid for by the individual but are offered at minimal charge, and financial assistance is available for those who qualify.

To earn accreditation, the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention Program completed an application process with extensive documentation of the program’s practices. AACVPR-certified programs are leaders in cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available and have proven track records of high-quality patient care.  The AACVPR certification is valid for three years.
