Cardiac Rehabilitation

What is Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac rehabilitation (often referred to as cardiac rehab) is a medically supervised program that helps patients recover quickly and provides knowledge to prevent future heart issues. Medicare and most insurance companies will cover cardiac rehab for a patient if they have had:

  • Angioplasty
  • Coronary artery bypass graft
  • Heart attacks within the last year
  • Heart/lung transplant
  • Heart valve repair or replacement
  • Stable angina
  • Heart failure

Our Program

Typically will last 6-12 weeks; (18-36 sessions; 2-3 times a week)
All patients in the program will be placed on a heart monitor during all exercises. Sessions will last approximately one hour.
Each session will consist of:

  • Aerobic training — treadmill and stationary bike
  • Resistance training — machines with added weight (pulleys)
  • Both training forms have been proven to improve one’s overall health
  • Educational programs are offered, given by guest speakers and program staff members
  • All sessions are supervised by our ACLS-certified team, medical director, registered nurses and an exercise physiologist
  • A doctor is always on staff during every session
