Twin County Regional Healthcare’s Rehabilitation Program Certified by Industry Leader
September 14, 2022
Twin County Regional Healthcare is proud to announce the certification of its cardiovascular rehabilitation program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). This certification is recognition of Twin County Regional Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation’s commitment to improving the quality of life of patients by enhancing standards of care.
Cardiovascular programs are 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.
To earn accreditation, Twin County Regional Healthcare’s cardiovascular rehabilitation program participated in an application process that requires extensive documentation of the program’s practices. AACVPR Program Certification is the only peer-review accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by AACVPR and other related professional societies. The application is reviewed by the AACVPR Program Certification Committee, and certification is awarded by the AACVPR Board of Directors.
In 2018, AACVPR moved to an outcomes-based process with performance measurements that represent more meaningful outcomes. Therefore, AACVPR-certified programs are leaders in the cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation field because they offer the most advanced practices available and have proven track records of high quality patient care. AACVPR Program Certification is valid for three years.
“We know the dedication and commitment our rehab program provides to the patients and their families,” stated Gregory Pearson, CEO of Twin County Regional Healthcare. “This certification makes official the high quality patient care and services they provide.”
