Cardiac therapy in Hermitage, Tennessee
For patients who have recently had heart surgery, a heart attack or angina, cardiac rehabilitation can be beneficial. Using a medically supervised program of exercise and education, our goal is to stabilize, slow or even reverse the damage caused by cardiovascular disease. In doing so, other debilitating heart conditions or events may be prevented.

Our cardiac rehabilitation program
As patients work through our cardiac rehab program, they gradually progress in time and intensity of exercise under the direction of trained nursing and exercise physiology staff.
Patients are educated on how to judge the safety of occupational and recreational activities outside of the rehabilitation setting. Additionally, they are provided with education on risk factor modification, medication usage and the emotional aspects of heart disease.
Combining all aspects of cardiac rehabilitation for appropriate patients and conditions works to increase the speed of recovery. To enroll in the program, we schedule an appointment time for a registered nurse to call you. They will do a short, telephone interview to discuss your medical history. At the time of the interview, we ask that you have the following information available:
- A list of your current medications
- The make/model of your car and the license plate number (a parking pass for the cardiac rehab parking lot or valet parking will be available)
- The name of your primary care physician and their office number
What to expect
During each session, you will wear a heart monitor to assess heart rate and rhythm. Blood pressure, blood glucose and oxygen levels will be measured frequently. Our nurses maintain close contact with your doctor, updating them on your progress and ensuring agreement with your plan.
Where to find us
Our team is available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm to discuss the program or any other questions you may have. For more information or additional directions, please call (615) 316-3136.
