  • Monmouth-Ocean, NJ (1888PressRelease) October 04, 2012 - Southern Ocean Medical Center is proud to announce the certification of its Cardiac Rehabilitation Program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). Southern Ocean was recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life by enhancing standards of care.

    Congratulations to cardiac rehab team members Lorraine Callahan, R.N., Nancy Komorowski, R.N., Rebekah Brewer and Elizabeth Schauder, RRT on this accomplishment.

    Southern Ocean's Cardiac rehabilitation program participated in the one-month 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 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," says Liz Schauder, manager of cardiac rehab. AACVPR Program Certification is valid for three years.
