Cardiac Rehabilitation

Presbyterian’s cardiac rehabilitation program provides an individualized program for patients with heart and vascular disease. Each of our cardiac rehabilitation locations provide a different mix of services, so be sure to contact the facility closest to you listed below to ask about availability.

Our rehab team members can work closely with you to improve cardiovascular health using exercises that improve your heart-related symptoms and increase aerobic capacity, muscle strength and endurance and flexibility. Patient education can round out the program by helping you understand risk factors, and provide you with assistance in weight loss, stress management, relaxation, and nutrition and diabetic education as needed.

We have two types of cardiac fitness programs available:

  • Cardiac Rehab: This is a physician-referred program for patients who have had a recent cardiac event or diagnosis, such as a heart attack, heart failure (or CHF), coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or stent placement. Patients who qualify for this program are supervised under the direction of a physician, as well as other cardiac rehab team members.

  • Cardiac Maintenance: This is an ongoing exercise program for patients who have completed their formal cardiac rehab program and wish to continue to work toward better cardiac health. This program is also ideal for patients who have a remote cardiac history in the past and are considered to be at low risk for problems when exercising.
