How our cardiac rehab program works

Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.

If you have recently experienced a cardiac event, your cardiologist may refer you to a Phase II cardiac rehab program. Phase II refers to the program being outpatient.

Who qualifies for cardiac rehab?

Those who qualify for rehab may include patients that have experienced:

  • Recent heart attack

What are the goals of cardiac rehabilitation?

The main goal of cardiac rehabilitation is to assist you in developing a personal healthy lifestyle plan, which includes physical activity, education, stress management, and nutrition. During monitored physical activity sessions, we work toward increased heart and lung capacity and overall muscle strength to give you the confidence to do the activities you enjoy most.
