The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Our cardiac rehabilitation program consists of Phase II rehab. This phase includes personalized exercise and physical therapy as well as instruction on diet, medications, stress reduction and how to reduce heart disease risk factors.
Phase II begins about two to six weeks after leaving the hospital; focuses on medically monitored and supervised exercise therapy sessions meeting three times per week for four—twelve weeks. Emphasis is also placed on education the patient to reduce the risks for coronary heart disease.
