Cardiac Rehabilitation Programs

The Cardiac Rehabilitation program takes your unique needs to heart, custom-designing a plan to help you attain and maintain good health. Cardiac Rehabilitation helps many people better cope with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI, heart attack), Angioplasty and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery. Rehabilitation begins while you are still in the hospital. The cardiac rehab team will help you and your family understand what has happened to your heart and the lifestyle changes needed to decrease the risk of recurring illness. We do offer Rehab for Congestive Heart Failure. After you leave the hospital, cardiac rehab continues on an outpatient basis. Again, our cardiac rehab team will create an individually designed exercise program, educational sessions, counseling on lifestyle modification and stress education.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Sometimes pulmonary and cardiac diseases go hand in hand. Pulmonary Rehabilitation helps many people to enjoy more productive lives by helping them better cope with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) including conditions such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma and other chronic lung disorders. In pulmonary rehab you learn techniques for controlling shortness of breath or managing the tasks of daily living.

Adult Fitness

If you don’t need cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation but want to lower your risk for disease, we offer the Adult Fitness Program. To help you stay well, we will work with you to create an exercise program tailored to your abilities and needs. Through Adult Fitness, we offer a variety of exercise equipment, and you exercise under the supervision of the same highly trained staff who works with cardiac and pulmonary rehab patients.
