In 1991, Reynolds Memorial Hospital began a three-phase, Cardiac Rehabilitation Program to meet the needs of cardiac patients and families. The goal of the program is to guide the heart patient toward recovery and good health through education, supervised heart-monitored exercise and psychological support.

Reynolds Memorial Hospital is proud to announce the certification of our cardiovascular rehabilitation program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR.) Reynolds Memorial Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program was recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life by enhancing standards of care. The program at Reynolds Memorial has been certified since 2000.

Cardiovascular rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems (e.g. heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery) to recover faster and improve their quality of life. This program includes exercise, education, counseling, and support for patients and their families.

The Reynolds Memorial cardiovascular rehabilitation program participated in an application process that requires extensive documentation of the program’s practices. AACVPR Program Certification is the only peer reviewed accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by AACVPR and other professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR Program Certification Committee and certification is awarded by the AACVPR Board of Directors.

Certified AACVPR programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices possible.
