Our cardiac rehab program
Our 12-week outpatient cardiac rehab program includes monitored exercise sessions and education. Patients who participate in cardiac rehabilitation after cardiac events or heart and vascular surgeries reduce their risks of needing future heart services.
Our cardiac rehab is designed to improve patient endurance, strength and confidence through the support of our cardiac rehab team. We strive to help our patients through recovery by improving their sense of well-being and quality of life.
Benefits of cardiac rehabilitation
Patients with heart conditions or who are recovering from heart and vascular surgery can experience many benefits from cardiac rehab.
Our cardiac experts are available to answer health-related questions and provide guidance for living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
We offer monitored exercise with a state-of-the-art telemetry system and exercise equipment, supervised by licensed nurses. Our telemetry system alerts our rehab team to any abnormal heart changes during an exercise session. This allows us to provide the appropriate intervention before symptoms occur.
