Cardiac rehabilitation programs we offer
As part of our comprehensive cardiology services, we offer cardiac rehabilitation programs on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Cardiac rehab consists of supervised exercise training, education about lifestyle changes and emotional support. Our heart rehabilitation specialists work with you to help reduce your heart disease risk, establish better eating habits and, if necessary, help you quit smoking.
Inpatient cardiac rehab occurs while you are still in the hospital. This may be because you have been admitted to the hospital after a cardiac emergency or planned heart and vascular surgery. We meet with you to assess your individual needs and begin working with you to improve strength, mobility and endurance. We also develop an individualized plan with your physician before you leave the hospital.
This type of rehab begins after you leave the hospital. For approximately 12 weeks, most patients will have one-hour sessions, three times per week. Exercise sessions prioritize aerobic conditioning along with light resistance training.
The cardiac rehabilitation maintenance program provides qualified personnel to help patients with continued exercise progression and adherence. This phase is used to help patients maintain good habits and a healthy lifestyle for the years to come.
