Cardiac, Pulmonary and Vascular Rehabilitation
Cardiac Rehabilitation is an outpatient program for individuals diagnosed with heart diseases such as heart attack, angioplasty or coronary stents, heart valve surgery or heart bypass surgery. It is a structured, supervised, cardiac monitored exercise program, which focuses on improving fitness and includes personalized education and diet instruction. This assists clients in reducing and controlling their cardiac risk factors, which reduces the chance of a future cardiac event.
- If a person with heart disease wishes to participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program, they will need a referral from their doctor. Medicare and most insurance plans cover cardiac rehabilitation at varying levels of coverage. If you are interested in participating, discuss it with your doctor.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary outpatient program designed to improve quality of life and optimal lung health.
Vascular Rehabilitation is a comprehensive outpatient program for those who have difficulty walking because of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) or circulatory problems in the legs.
