Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac Rehab is an exercise and education program for outpatients with a known history of heart disease. This includes patients, young adult to elderly, who have stable angina, have had an intervention such as a stent or angioplasty, coronary artery bypass or valve surgery, transplant, or have been diagnosed with myocardial infarction or heart failure.

The aim of this nationally certified program is to reduce modifiable risk factors for further disease by assisting patients to make positive lifestyle changes.  This is achieved by providing information and support in establishing a safe exercise regime, smoking cessation, management of weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes.

Referral from a physician is required.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation is offered in the Betty R. Fisher Cardiac Rehabilitation Center, located on the main floor of the hospital.
