lifestyle in a supervised setting.
Our dedicated rehabilitation team includes:

Cardiac Rehabilitation consists of three phases:
Phase I Inpatient
This phase begins during your
hospital stay and provides education about the heart and good health
habits. Low intensity exercise begins at this time.
Phase II Outpatient
This phase is an 8-12 week program of education, exercise
and fun. The health care team
helps you set realistic goals and take an active role in your recovery.
Exercise sessions meet three times per week and include continuous
supervision and heart monitoring. Staff also provides and suggests
dietary and stress management modifications.
Phase III Ongoing
Regular exercise supervision and
support for continued positive lifestyle changes. You may chose to
participate in this phase on an ongoing basis.
