Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Cardiac Rehab Program receives national certification


The Program provides cardiac rehabilitation to individuals who have experienced stable angina, a heart attack, cardiac surgery, balloon angioplasty, stent placement or heart transplant.

“A certified cardiac rehabilitation program can significantly improve the life expectancy and quality of life of people who have suffered a recent cardiac event by helping patients live better through risk factor modification including diet, exercise and stress management,” said Mary Margaret Winter, RN, BA, who directs the Program.

Hallmark Health’s Cardiac Rehabilitations Programs are the only certified cardiac rehabilitation programs north of Boston. The programs at Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital have both received certification and are two of only 12 programs in the state to receive this highly regarded designation.
