Cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation aims to help you recover from a cardiovascular event — such as a heart attack or heart failure — or other debilitating heart condition. This recovery process usually involves physical therapy, exercise and education to rebuild and maintain your heart strength.

As part of this, we offer access to complete cardiac rehab services. Patients may enter our outpatient cardiac rehab program after receiving inpatient rehabilitative care at our hospital, or they may be referred to our program as part of their initial care plan.

Benefits of our outpatient cardiac rehab program

Our cardiac rehab program is designed to improve endurance, strength and confidence through the support of our cardiac rehab team. Patients who participate in cardiac rehab after surgeries or heart events reduce their risks of needing future heart services.

We offer monitored exercise with a state-of-the-art telemetry system, supervised by licensed nurses. Our telemetry system alerts our team to any abnormal heart changes during an exercise session. This allows us to provide the appropriate intervention before symptoms occur.

Our cardiac rehab team

Our cardiac rehab team includes registered nurses and registered exercise physiologists. We strive to help our patients throughout their recovery by improving their sense of well-being and quality of life.

Throughout the 12-week program, our cardiac rehab team is available to answer any health-related questions and provide guidance for living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
