Cardiac Rehabilitation is an outpatient program designed to encourage a heart-healthy lifestyle through exercise, the reduction of cardiovascular risk factors and education. We also can aid in your recovery from a heart attack, heart surgery, angioplasty or stents, heart transplant, stable angina or other heart problems.
Your participation in our program is directed by your physician. Other program participants are much like you — people who are recovering from a cardiac event or disease. While you attend our program, we monitor your heart rate, EKG, blood pressure and other aspects of your health.
Our staff consists of health professionals — registered nurses, exercise physiologists and a registered dietitian — with years of experience caring for cardiac patients.
The benefits of participating in our cardiac rehabilitation program include:
- Reducing the risk and severity of future heart problems.
- Increasing your knowledge of cardiac disease, diet and risk factors.
- Reducing symptoms of coronary disease.
- Lowering your heart rate and blood pressure.
- Increasing your strength and stamina.
- Getting assistance with weight control/weight loss.
- Learning how to reduce stress.
- Improving your quality of life, self-confidence and well-being.
