Following a heart disease diagnosis, heart attack or cardiovascular surgery,
cardiac rehab is a program designed for not only the patient, but also
their families to help the patient get back to the best possible heart
health. Memorial’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program uses a multidisciplinary
approach to teach cardiac patients and their families about the disease
process, risk factor modification, heart healthy eating and how to exercise
safely to improve both their heart health and their quality of life.
The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is nationally certified through the
AACVPR (American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation),
offering a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient program that includes:
Cardiac Maintenance – A heart-healthy exercise and counseling program designed to improve
the individual patient’s cardiac health and help prevent the worsening
of heart disease or future cardiac events.
Pulmonary Rehab – Often used for patients with lung conditions such as COPD and
shortness of breath, this program uses exercise to improve the breathing function.
Adult Fitness – An exercise philosophy that promotes the best fitness methods
for each individual patient, one of the keys to heart health.
