Continuum of Care

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehab is a prescribed cardiac treatment regimen that involves a medical and physical evaluation as well as nutrition and medication education for a patient after a cardiac incident. We provide an individualized exercise program that will address the cardiac disease and interventions of the patient. Our goal is to improve their strength and stamina so our patients will be able to return to their usual daily routine. All physical activities are performed using a cardiac monitoring system, with a registered nurse and a nurse aid’s supervision.
