It may also be recommended for patients for percutaneous cardiac intervention (PCI) procedures, such as stenting and angioplasty.
Our cardiac rehab program
Our program is designed to help patients improve their quality of life and educate them on topics surrounding cardiac disease and self-management.
To help patients increase physical fitness and reduce the risk of developing future cardiac problems, our multidisciplinary heart rehabilitation team offers:
- Monitored exercise
- Diet instructions
- Disease management

Cardiac therapy exercise sessions
Depending on each patient's individual treatment plan, exercise therapy sessions are scheduled three days each week for up to 12 weeks. During these sessions, blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation and blood glucose (for those who have diabetes) levels are monitored to ensure safety at all times. A doctor will be available in the adjoining area during exercise sessions.
Cardiac rehab referral
Entrance into the cardiac rehab program requires a doctor's referral. Any physician is able to refer a patient for cardiac therapy. The referring doctor will receive reports regarding progress in the individualized treatment plan we have developed for their patient.
