Cardiac rehabilitation is an outpatient program offered to help people recover from a heart attack, stent placement, bypass surgery, heart failure, heart transplant, peripheral artery disease (PAD), or valve repair/replacement. According to the American Heart Association, participating in cardiac rehab is one of the best things you can do for your heart health after a diagnosis of heart attack or a heart failure, or after a procedure such as angioplasty or heart surgery.
The cardiac rehabilitation program includes exercise and education. Exercise is monitored and is structured to each participant’s condition and ability. Education is based on the patient’s needs and includes information on making healthy lifestyle changes. The goal of cardiac rehabilitation is to improve your overall health and fitness, reduce your risk of future heart problems, and allow you to return to your activities.
We also offer ongoing heart disease risk factor education, congestive heart failure education, and diabetes education. Our experienced professionals have a passion for helping patients reduce their risk factors and make healthy lifestyle changes.
