New manager named for University's Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab program
Moronica Carter, recently promoted to Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab and pulmonary diagnostics manager, has worked at University Hospital for 16 years, 12 as part of its Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program. The program is designed to strengthen patients after a cardiac or pulmonary incident.
"University has one of the largest programs in Georgia, and we're able to offer both cardiac and pulmonary rehab to our patients, which most programs don't," Ms. Carter said. "Working in Cardio-Pulmonary as a therapist has been one of the most rewarding positions I have ever had because you get to see a patient come in with whatever chronic heart disease or lung disease they have, and they may not be able to walk to the mailbox, and by the time they're leaving they're dancing.
"So to come back and be able to manage this program is even more of an honor and a blessing for me."
