Diseases, Conditions & Treatments
If you have had a heart attack, bypass surgery, angioplasty, valve replacement or have angina, congestive heart failure or any other cardiac-related illness, you can benefit from our cardiac rehabilitation program.
Our goal is to help people with heart disease participate actively and confidently in their own recovery. Our staff is committed to helping you return, as much as possible, to the life you enjoyed before heart disease.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a multidimensional, medically supervised program designed to help patients recover as quickly as possible from heart disease. With a comprehensive focus on exercise, education and lifestyle change, the program is specially designed to improve your overall physical and mental functioning. Learn what to expect during cardiac rehab.
People who participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program following heart surgery or a diagnosis of heart disease tend to have better outcomes in managing their condition.
A specialized team of physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists, nutritionists and other healthcare professionals will oversee your progress in our cardiac rehabilitation program. Learn about the three phases of cardiac rehab.
We'll customize an exercise program to match your particular needs and improvement goals, with gradually increasing fitness targets.
Our staff is on hand at all times to monitor your EKG, blood pressure and heart rate during exercise. We will also teach you relaxation techniques that will help increase your sense of well-being.
You'll need a referral from your doctor to participate in our cardiac rehabilitation program. If you're not currently seeing a doctor use our physician search to find a primary care physician or cardiologist.
A prescription is needed to begin the cardiac rehabilitation program. Most insurance companies cover phases I and II, depending upon the policy, and Medicare covers both phases as well as entrance and exit stress tests. Phase III and wellness-related services are charged at the end of the month and are not usually covered.
