Hospital of Central Connecticut Bradley Memorial campus cardiac rehabilitation program certified

[October 04 2011] - The All Heart Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s Bradley Memorial campus recently received three-year certification by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).

Certified AACVPR programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. All Heart participated in the one-month AACVPR application process, which requires extensive documentation of program practices.

The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s All Heart Program includes closely supervised exercise, ongoing education, risk factor modification, and counseling for people with heart disease, including angina or heart failure, and those who have had a heart attack, heart surgery or angioplasty.

Founded in 1985, the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation is dedicated to reducing morbidity, mortality and disability from cardiovascular and pulmonary disease through education, prevention, rehabilitation, research and disease management.
