Bronson Battle Creek Pulmonary Rehabilitation Receives National Certification
Bronson Battle Creek (BBC) is proud to announce the recertification of its pulmonary rehabilitation program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
BBC was recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life by enhancing standards of care.
Pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with pulmonary problems (e.g., chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), respiratory symptoms) recover faster and improve their quality of life. Programs include exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.
BBC Pulmonary Rehabilitation participated in an application process that requires extensive documentation of the program’s practices. AACVPR Program Certification is the only peer-review accreditation process designed to review individual programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by AACVPR and other professional societies. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR Program Certification Committee and certification is awarded by the AACVPR Board of Directors.
AACVPR-certified programs are recognized as leaders in the field of pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. AACVPR Program Certification is valid for three years (2016-19) and BBC has been certified since 2004.
