Cardiac Rehabilitation

Under physician supervision, the Cardiac Rehabilitation program combines exercise and education to restore strength and create a healthier lifestyle for patients following a heart attack or coronary intervention.

The program is one of the most progressive available, combining the skills of nutritionists, exercise therapists, nurses, cardiologists and primary care physicians to help patients understand coronary artery disease and its effect on their lives.

Testimonials

"I could not have asked for more support from the staff. I learned more about medication, exercise, and diet than ever before. I also learned of the effect of each on my health. It was a very positive learning and exercise program. I would recommend this program to others without hesitation."

"I think the cardiac-rehab program is great. I can't praise it enough. When I was in the program it brought my confidence back, and I learned what I should be doing. I hope that everyone who needs the program will take part in it."
