Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehab is a supervised and individualized program designed to help you improve your health and decrease your cardiac risk factors. Once you have been discharged from the hospital after open heart surgery or a heart attack, your provider may send us orders for you to begin Cardiac Rehab or you may contact your provider for a referral. Sessions are usually 2-3 times per week involving exercise, strength training and education.


  • Counseling and training: Exercise gets your heart pumping and your entire cardiovascular system working. You will learn how to get your body moving in ways that promote heart health.
  • Education for heart-healthy living: Managing your risk factors, choosing good nutrition, quitting smoking… education about heart-healthy living is a key element of cardiac rehab.
  • Counseling to reduce stress: Stress hurts your heart. This part of rehab helps you identify and tackle everyday sources of stress.
