Yeadon Skilled Nursing Facility Now Offers Full Cardio Pulmonary Care Program  

YEADON, Pa. (Aug. 22, 2023) Providence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Yeadon has introduced cardiac rehabilitation services under the direction of clinical cardiologist Richard Allen Seifert, MD. Located at 600 South Wycombe Avenue, Providence provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.    

The new initiative pairs with Providence’s established Pulmonary Care services, led by Ajay Pilai, MD, for a comprehensive Cardio Pulmonary Care offering. The full program at Providence promotes independence and quality of life through reducing symptoms and decreasing disability in heart and lung patients, while increasing their participation in physical and social activities. Services are tailored for individuals with a range of diagnoses. 

Dr. Seifert is affiliated with Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic’s Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital and Crozer Health’s Taylor Hospital. He has maintained a private practice focused on noninvasive clinical cardiology since 1989. 

“Dr. Seifert is highly respected in the region for his cardiology expertise and warm manner; Providence is thrilled to welcome him to the clinical team,” said Danielle Koons, senior regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility. “Dr. Seifert is working closely with Dr. Pilai and the entire Cardio Pulmonary team to provide for the best possible outcomes for patients.” 

Along with consults with Dr. Seifert, Dr. Pilai and other board-certified specialists, Providence heart and lung patients benefit from certified nurses on staff, onsite and full-time respiratory therapy as prescribed, 24/7 access to lab and radiology services, and 24-hour licensed nursing supervision. A range of additional services and therapies are available seven days a week, as prescribed.  

Providence continues to build on its commitment to comprehensive cardio pulmonary care and services. To that end, the facility recently earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification. Providence maintains a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). More information on the skilled nursing facility can be found at provrehab.com.
