Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac Rehabilitation is a medically supervised exercise and education program that helps you to safely improve your heart health and overall health while recovering from a cardiac event. Both the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology recommend cardiac rehab programs for patients with heart disease or who have needed heart surgery.

For most anyone who has had a heart attack or a bypass operation, Cardiac Rehab is an effective way to help prevent another one. It is clinically proven to improve a cardiac patient's quality of life and to reduce the recurrence of subsequent heart attacks and related diseases.

Our Cardiac Rehab program works with patients to develop an exercise program that includes activities that they enjoy, making class sessions both fun and effective.

The program offers:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Weight reduction
  • Diabetes management
  • Stress management
  • Smoking cessation
  • Medication support
  • Education and consultation pertaining to lifestyle change
