Julia Bettinger recently was honored for her contribution to the Cardiopulmonary Wellness Dept. at JCHC.
She has been involved in the Montana Cardiac Rehabilitation Outcomes Project that is sponsored by the Montana Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (MACVPR) and the Cardiovascular Health Program within the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services. This project has been going for 13 years, and has over 110 Cardiac rehab programs from 16 states tracking and reporting on a uniform set of evidence-based cardiac rehab quality indicators.
The Cardiac Rehab program in Buffalo had the highest rating of all small hospitals from Montana and Northern Wyoming participating in the project over this past year. Of the 13 quality indicators evaluated, JCHC’s cardiac rehab program exceeded the regional benchmark in 11 of the 13 indicators.
JCHC’s cardiac rehab program and Julia were recognized at MACVPR’s annual conference in Billings, MT on Sept. 28, 2018. Please join us in congratulating Julia on the excellent care she is providing your cardiac patients in and around Buffalo!
