July 29, 2019

The pulmonary rehabilitation program at Goshen Heart & Vascular Center was recently certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The association reviews facilities to ensure they follow standards and guidelines for best practices published by the association and other professional societies.
 
“Following these standards of care enables us to give the best, scientifically-based care to our patients. We take our commitment to our patients seriously and this certification reflects that,” said Ram Khattri Chettri MBA-HCM, MS, MATS, NP-C, RN, service line administrator for Goshen Health heart and vascular services.

Pulmonary rehabilitation is dedicated to helping people with lung problems recover faster and improve their overall quality of life. The program includes exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.
