At Banner Health, we offer cardiac rehabilitation programs to help you live a healthier life. Our team of cardiac rehabilitation specialists will work closely with your physician and health care team to develop a personalized exercise and diet program to meet your needs. Before you begin your rehabilitation, you may have questions.
Cardiac rehab can help improve your heart’s performance through exercise, a healthy diet, stress reduction and education.
Our cardiac rehabilitation program consists of three phases:
If you’ve had heart surgery, cardiac rehabilitation may begin in the hospital with low-level, progressive physical activity. You and family members will learn about heart disease. You’ll also learn how to manage your care after discharge from the hospital.
The outpatient program provides self-monitoring skills and tools for a healthy lifestyle. You’ll follow monitored exercise sessions three times a week. You and your family will also receive education on diet, exercise and stress management.
In this phase, you’ll have the opportunity to build upon the progress you made in Phases 1 and 2. This program can also be beneficial if you’re at risk of developing heart disease but have not yet required surgical intervention.
Phase 3 includes a supervised exercise program and ongoing support to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
