Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation is a safe and effective program for individuals recovering from a heart attack, bypass surgery, coronary angioplasty or stent, cardiomyopathy, heart transplant, or valve repair/replacement. Other candidates include those suffering from angina (chest pain). 

Cardiac Rehabilitation helps: 

  • Reduce the symptoms of heart disease.
  • Reduce the risk of further heart problems.
  • Improve your energy level.
  • Strengthen your heart and body.
  • You return to work and recreational activities.
  • Control diabetes, cholesterol, weight and blood pressure.
  • You learn to manage stress.
  • You take steps toward smoking cessation.
  • You understand proper nutrition.

This medically supervised program features exercise, education and behavior modification and also includes:

  • A cardiac support group system.
  • Exercise opportunities for spouses.
  • A community wellness center for patients once they are discharged.

Remember, YOU are the most important member of your cardiac team, which also includes your family doctor, internist and cardiologist; a cardiac exercise specialist; nurses; and dietitians.  Cardiac Rehabilitation services are covered by Medicare and most major medical plans.

We also have a Heart Smart Prevention Program for people at risk of developing heart disease!
