CMH was recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life by enhancing standards of care. The program has been AACVPR certified since 2000.

The CMH cardiac 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 professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR program certification committee and certification is awarded by the AACVPR board of directors.

AACVPR-certified programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. AACVPR program certification is valid for three years.

The CMH cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to help heart and lung patients recover quickly from a heart-related surgery, a heart attack or diagnosis of heart or pulmonary disease. It includes a team of physicians, registered nurses, registered respiratory therapists, and dietitians who work with patients, their families, and their physicians to structure a lifestyle plan tailored to meet their specific needs. The program is in a state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility within the walls of the hospital, but is also easily accessible from outside. CMH offers stationary bicycles, treadmills, recumbent ellipticals, rowing machines, weight stations, stationary hand cycles and an indoor walking track.  Every member of the CMH cardio-pulmonary team is certified in advanced cardiac life support.
