Cardiac rehabilitation is a specialized, comprehensive program for patients who have heart disease, or those at risk for developing heart disease. Registered nurses, exercise physiologists, and dieticians come together to help decrease the risk of a first or second cardiac event, cope with heart disease, eliminate bad behaviors such as poor diet and smoking, and increase strength and endurance.

All sessions are EKG-monitored and supervised by professional staff with training in cardiac rehabilitation. Prime candidates for cardiac rehabilitation include patients with:

  • Heart failure
  • Angioplasty
  • Coronary artery bypass graft
  • Open heart surgery
  • Heart attack
  • Stent placement
  • Valve repair or replacement

Cardiac rehabilitation is available 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. For more information, please call (713) 359-1375.
