American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR)

Trumbull Regional Medical Center is proud to announce the recertification of its Cardiac Rehabilitation Program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). Trumbull Regional’s Cardiac Rehab Program has been certified since 2014 and is the only certified program in the Mahoning Valley. The program is being recognized for its commitment to improving quality of life by enhancing standards of care.


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

Trumbull Regional Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program 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.

“We are very proud of receiving this recertification, it’s a testament to our commitment of providing the highest-quality of cardiac rehabilitation possible” said Robert Halicky, Clinical Exercise Physiologist at Trumbull Regional. “Every patient is different and so is their recovery. We provide every patient with an individualized treatment plan consisting of exercise, education and counseling support to help them reach their goals and improve their quality of life.”

AACVPR-certified 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.
