MACON, GA (Monday, September 10, 2012) –Heartworks cardiac rehabilitation program, a service of The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG), recently received recertification status from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).

Heartworks cardiac rehabilitation program incorporates education, counseling and exercise to help patients with, or at risk for, cardiovascular disease reach their optimal level of well-being and self-sufficiency.
