“This re-certification is a direct result of our dedicated employees, physiatrists and leadership,” said Heidi Jibby, St. Luke’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program Manager. “This is one measurement for patients and the public to know of the quality care and safety being provided at St. Luke's.”
