Mercy Cardiac Rehab Gains National Recertification
The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) has nationally recertified the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Mercy Medical Center—Sioux City.
Mercy’s Cardiac Rehab program, which is housed in the state-of-the-art Mercy Heart Center in downtown Sioux City, earned the three year recertification following a rigorous review that verified its excellent clinical practices.
Sue Mohning, the manager of the cardiac rehab program, says the national recertification is a result of Mercy’s intense focus on quality of care. “Mercy’s cardiac rehab program is now in its 30th year of service to the people of Siouxland,” said Mohning. “When a program such as ours earns recertification, that’s an indication that the services we provide to our patients is of the highest quality. We are proud to be able to provide such a high quality program to our patients and are grateful to them for allowing Mercy to help them deal with the challenges of heart disease.”
Designed to limit the physiological and psychological effects of heart disease and cardiac illness, Mercy’s cardiac rehabilitation program strives to stabilize or improve the patient’s condition and enhance the patient’s quality of life.
Mercy Medical Center has been consistently recognized as the region’s highest rated heart care facility. HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent hospital ratings agency, identified Mercy Medical Center as the #1 rated hospital in the entire state of Iowa for cardiac care. “Our patients deserve a great program, so that is exactly what we want to maintain for them.”
