Research shows that exercise and a healthy diet lower our risk. That's why our cardiac rehabilitation programs offer a supervised exercise and education experience for patients who have had a history of a heart attack, angina, stent, congestive heart failure, bypass surgery, valve surgery, or a heart transplant. A referral from the patient's primary physician is required to participate. In addition to improving heart health through fitness and a heart-friendly diet, our graduates also benefit from greater confidence, a better sense of well-being, and a community of patients and staff that will always have your back.
Patients usually begin our Phase II program about two to six weeks after they have been discharged from the hospital. The program lasts eight to twelve weeks, and most insurance providers will cover up to thirty-six sessions that take place two or three times per week.
Exercise therapy includes the use of treadmills, stationary bikes, hand weights and other equipment. Patients wear a wireless cardiac monitor so that we can see how the heart is responding to increases in activity. Our educational programs combine in-person sessions and on-demand video to explore cardiac anatomy and physiology, exercise guidance, nutrition, medications, blood pressure control, weight management, smoking cessation, and stress management.
