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.

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 returning 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.

Education programs

We offer free Heart Education Lectures at Legacy Good Samaritan and Legacy Meridian Park Medical centers, vascular screenings, and occasional special events.
