Rehabilitation Services at Banner Heart Hospital
Banner Heart Hospital maintains a nationally certified comprehensive, medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation program to address the varied needs of our patients. A team of health care professionals including physicians, registered nurses, exercise physiologists, and dietitians work together to return patients to their highest level of function as quickly and safely as possible.
We have a three-phased cardiac rehabilitation program that consists of inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient rehabilitation and a maintenance program to help patients adjust to and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Phase I - Inpatient Rehabilitation is designed for patients who have experienced a heart attack, coronary stent, heart surgery, heart failure or angina. Emphasis is placed on education on heart disease and a gradual introduction of exercise and its role in overall heart health.
Phase II - Outpatient Rehabilitation provides self-monitoring skills and the tools necessary for a healthy lifestyle. Monitored exercise sessions three times a week and a weekly group education and support class are key components of the outpatient rehabilitation phase.
Phase III - The Maintenance phase of the program gives patients the opportunity to build upon the progress made during the outpatient rehabilitation phase. The program includes supervised exercise and ongoing support to maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle.
The Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Banner Heart Hospital is designed to complement physician care. Patients must receive a written referral to begin cardiac rehabilitation.
In addition to a physician referral, please speak with your insurance provider to confirm whether outpatient cardiac rehabilitation is a covered service.
