Ellis Cardiac Rehabilitation Program Recognized by AACVPR

Thursday, January 3, 2019

The Ellis Medicine Cardiac Rehab Department has successfully received recognition for being a certified cardiac rehab program from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). This acknowledgement was received due to the staff's commitment to improving patient's quality of life by enhancing standards of care. The Ellis Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is the only AACVPR certified cardiovascular program in Schenectady and one of the only two in the Capital Region.

Cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems (e.g., heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery) and pulmonary problems (e.g., chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD], respiratory symptoms,) recover faster and improve their quality of life. Both programs include exercise, education, counseling, and support for patients and their families.

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
