Cardiac Rehabilitation

People who participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program can lower their risk of future cardiac problems by nearly 25%.

For most people with heart disease, life after a cardiac event centers on improving their quality of life both physically and emotionally. Cardiac rehabilitation provides you with a path for making lifestyle changes that can lead to a lifetime of health.

Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Unit offers inpatient and outpatient programs. A dedicated team of exercise physiologists, registered nurses, dietitians and pharmacists helps you set recovery goals and guides you through the educational programs and exercise classes that will get you back to healthy, independent living. Your rehabilitation begins during your hospital stay with a physician’s referral. When you are released from the hospital, the Cardiac Rehab team refers you to the appropriate outpatient program.

Customized Cardiac Rehab

With guidance from your physician, the outpatient cardiac rehab team develops an exercise plan just for you so you can safely meet your personal goals for daily activity, returning to work and recreation. We also teach you about the risk factors of cardiac disease and steps you can take to improve your risk profile. Through our comprehensive program, we help you prevent progression of your heart disease and enjoy a lifetime of optimal health.
