Cardiac Rehabilitation is a program designed to restore and maintain individuals with heart disease to their optimal physiological, social, vocational and emotional levels. Participants include those who have experienced a heart attack, coronary artery bypass graft, coronary angioplasty/stents or stable angina, heart valve repair or replacement, heart or heart lung transplant, congestive heart failure.

Phase 1 occurs while the patient is hospitalized and being treated for heart complications.

Phase 2 is a cardiovascular outpatient exercise program, which is continuously monitored through telemetry. Each participant is assessed and an individual program is developed. Education classes include stress management, medication review, low fat, low sodium, low cholesterol diets, smoking cessation, hypertension and other cardiac risk factors.

Lifetime Maintenance Phase of Cardiac Rehab is an affordable, cardiovascular exercise program which is designed to promote the continuation of established goals in the participant's individualized plan. The Lifetime Maintenance program encourages independent exercise, while maintaining a heart healthy lifestyle.
