BSA Cardiac Rehab Program Recertified as a Leader in Heart Care

Posted

AMARILLO, TEXAS (October 12, 2021) – The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at BSA Outpatient Therapy Services has been recertified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The BSA Cardiac Rehab Program has held this certification since 2015.

AACVPR certified programs are leaders in the cardiovascular rehabilitation field, offer the most advanced practices available, and have proven track records of providing high-quality patient care. To earn recertification, BSA Outpatient Therapy Services participated in a process that requires extensive documentation of the program’s practices.

“We are proud to once again be recognized as a leader in heart care and rehabilitation,” said Brant Capps, BSA Outpatient Therapy Services Director. “Gaining the recertification of our Cardiac Rehab Program stands as a testament to our team’s dedication to helping patients achieve optimal outcomes after a heart-related incident.”

The BSA Cardiac Rehab Program helps patients with heart-related health issues and those who have undergone heart surgery recover faster through exercise, education and support. The program is 12 weeks long with classes three days per week.

“Our program is life-changing for those who participate,” Capps stated. “The ultimate goal of cardiac rehab is to help patients lead more active and heart-healthy lifestyles.”

AACVPR Program certification is valid for three years. For up-to-date information about healthcare at BSA Health System, please visit bsahs.org.
