National association certifies Gundersen Boscobel Cardiopulmonary Rehab Program

Thursday, September 02, 2021

The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) recently certified Gundersen Boscobel’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program, recognizing its commitment to the highest standards of care. 

Cardiac Rehab is a medically supervised program designed to improve cardiovascular health for patients who experienced heart attack, heart failure, angioplasty, heart surgery and other heart conditions. The program provides exercise counseling and training, education, as well as counseling and support for patients and their families. Patients can strengthen their hearts and learn healthy heart habits under the supervision of a medical team.

The program is staffed by a nurse, exercise physiologists, a behavioral health specialist and a dietician. This team sought AACVPR certification to ensure the best care for their patients.

AACVPR certification guarantees the program meets all regulatory requirements and abides by all industry standards. To achieve certification, the department underwent an extensive submission of documentation of their program and practices. AACVPR is a peer-review accreditation led by the Program Certification Committee.

"This solidifies that our care meets national standards related to patient safety, outcome measures, individual treatment plans, physician supervision, staff competencies, policies and procedures and medical emergency preparedness," said Rehab Services Manager Nora Munson.
