Our cardiac rehab program provides assistance for people who have had heart
attacks, heart surgery, or have been diagnosed with a cardiovascular disease.
This is a fitness-based program aimed at reducing risk factors for heart
disease and cardiac events. Every patient’s experience in rehab
is different, as programs are custom built to fit the needs and lifestyle
of individual participants. A team of cardiologists, physiologists, and
nurses work together to come up with your heart disease management plan.
The cardiac rehabilitation program is divided into three phase:
Stage One, Education – The first step is educating you and your loved ones about heart disease
so you can start thinking about what you can do to reduce your risk factors.
Heart disease is regulated by lifestyle, meaning there are many things
you can do to change your situation!
Stage Two, Exercise – Cardio exercise is one of the best things you can do get your heart in
a good place. If you have already suffered a heart attack, it is important
to participate in a supervised program like this one so that you can ease
the heart into its new routine.
Stage three, Support – Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. There
are others who have had experiences similar to yours who can provide you
with moral support as you work to make a positive life change.
Cardiac rehab sessions take place at Marion General Hospital. Call (765)
