SRMC Celebrates Cardiac Rehab Week


February 16, 2018

Sidney Regional Medical Center (SRMC) and the members of the SRMC Cardiac Rehab Team, this week celebrated AACVPR National Cardiac Rehabilitation Week, Feb. 11-17.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Week, initiated by the AACVPR, coincides with both Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month in an effort to draw greater national attention to heart health. This year’s theme, “Making Positive Changes, One Beat at a Time,” honors the patients, families, and healthcare professionals who are dedicated to cardiac rehabilitation as a vehicle for a healthy lifestyle.

Evie Ranslem-Parsons, SRMC director of public relations, says the hospital is committed to reducing the potentially devastating effects of heart disease and improving quality of life for patients and their families. Recently the SRMC Cardiac Rehab team received certification of its program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Cardiac rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular problems (e.g., heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, heart valve replacements) recover safely and improve their quality of life. The program includes exercise, education, counseling, and support for patients and their families.

If you have questions or would like more information about cardiac rehabilitation services, contact director, Kristin Narjes RT at 308.254.7268 ext 1443.
