Education, exercise, and behavioral and nutritional counseling are combined to create personalized treatment plans that complement the medical and surgical care that our patients receive. Patients in the cardiac rehabilitation program recover more fully, improve their fitness levels, and reduce their cardiac risk factors while also strengthening their hearts. Our team regularly communicates with each patient's physician throughout the program.
Includes heart conditions, risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and how to prevent further complications.
Under the direct supervision of the program medical director, an exercise physiologist and cardiac rehabilitation nurse design a personal program of cardiovascular exercise and muscle conditioning for each patient. Exercise sessions are closely monitored and include a cardiovascular aerobic workout, strength training and flexibility segments.
Our dietitian reviews patients' eating habits and teaches them enjoyable ways to incorporate new foods.
Our clinical counselor talks to patients about their stress patterns and helps them develop tools for reducing stress and supporting behavioral change.
