Cardiac Rehabilitation

Legacy provides the complete circle of care in cardiovascular with a cardiac rehabilitation program certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).  Our cardiac rehabilitation program uses education, exercise and emotional support for patients who have had a heart-related event.  This could include those at high risk for a heart attack, heart surgery or cardiac intervention.  For heart patients, we want to help you reach your full potential and return to the work and leisure activities you enjoy, sooner.

 

 

Cardiac rehabilitation programs

Our Phase II Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation programs aim to maximize your daily function and quality of life while minimizing the amount of emergency care you need. Our nurse case managers provide ongoing education and counseling; follow-up with your primary care physician will also contribute to a successful recovery.

Our goals for you

These programs of heart health education and progressive exercise are designed to:

  • Increase cardiac fitness
  • Educate about cardiovascular disease
  • Reduce risk factors
  • Assist in return to work
  • Promote psychological adjustment

We also offer the latest methods of support for patients in end-stage heart failure. Although medical therapy is proving increasingly successful, coordination of care for those needing transplantation or devices is readily provided by our cardiology and surgical staff.

Wellness programs

Whether you're at risk for heart or pulmonary disease, living with it, or you're in full recovery, we encourage you to participate in our wellness programs to maintain a lifelong commitment of healthy living. Your family is welcome to participate, too.
