As part of their commitment to provide cardiac patients with the best care, hospital facilities across the United States are adopting the Pritikin Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation (ICR) program. Pritikin ICR is a Medicare-approved, comprehensive lifestyle change program that teaches patients how to maximize recovery from a cardiovascular disease-related event. The Pritikin Program has been taught at the Pritikin Longevity Center, a health and wellness facility in Miami, Florida, for nearly four decades. It is licensed in over 30 hospital facilities nationwide and is growing rapidly.
“Pritikin ICR has been a game-changer,” said Dr. Bruce Murphy, President and CEO at Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock. “We’ve not only seen improved outcomes in patients who have undergone a cardiac procedure, patients have systematically walked away with lives forever changed. The feedback from our patients has been incredible. They feel healthier, stronger and able to achieve what they once thought was impossible. Now we’re expanding to additional locations.”
