Cardiac Rehabilitation Programs:

Phase 2- EKG Monitored Program

Started early in recovery after a cardiac event or procedure, this program includes:

  • Education to understand and manage heart disease including cardiac risk factor identification and modification.
  • An individualized EKG-monitored exercise program to safely improve the heart's function and build strength and endurance. Exercises include stretching, range of motion, cardiorespiratory exercise (treadmill, stationary bicycle, NuStep etc.) and strength training.
  • Information on physical activity guidelines.
  • Emotional support. 

Phase 3- Cardio Direct Exercise Maintenance Program

This is a "self-pay" program for patients who have completed Phase 2 Cardiac Rehab. This non-EKG monitored program offers ongoing exercise, education and support while making important lifestyle changes.

A physician referral is required.
