Cardiac rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems (e. g. heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, etc.), recover faster and improve their quality of life. The program includes exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.

The Lehigh Valley Hospital–Hazleton cardiac rehabilitation program participated in the application process which requires extensive documentation of the program’s practices. The AACVPR Program Certification is the only peer-reviewed accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by the AACVPR and other professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR National Certification Committee and re-certification is awarded by the AACVPR Board of Directors.

Certified AACVPR 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.
