Legacy's cardiac, pulmonary rehab programs receive national accreditation (USA)

The cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center (Oregon) and Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center recently earned national accreditation from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Certification recognizes those programs that are rigorously reviewed by a national board and found to meet strict national standards and guidelines for patient safety and treatment protocols. The cardiac and pulmonary teams at both hospitals include registered nurses, exercise physiologists, physical therapists, dietitians and medical assistants. The staffs know that accomplishing the recertification of their programs by AACVPR sends a powerful message that they provide the highest quality programs to serve the needs of their patients and their families. Good Samaritan Medical Center and Meridian Park Medical Center offer comprehensive services, including cardiac rehab (inpatient); cardiac and pulmonary rehab (outpatient); wellness programs in the hospitals; and partnerships with health clubs in the community - Oregon Live
