Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

When it comes to matters of the heart, we are here to help!

Stroobants Cardiovascular Center Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program guides you and your family through recovery after a heart-related event. Research has shown that cardiac rehabilitation significantly reduces your risk of heart problems happening again. It also helps you regain your independence.

While the core of cardiac rehabilitation is exercise, the program also targets nutrition and diet, weight management, and handling the emotional aspects of recovery.  Program Benefits:

- Improve your strength and endurance
- Understand your symptoms and medications
- Return to daily activities
- Improve quality of life
- Do more of the things you enjoy!

Your cardiac rehab team understands that it can be difficult returning to an active life after being hospitalized and living with a chronic heart problem. We offer classes, individualized counseling and plenty of encouragement to help you on your journey. Cardiac rehabilitation is a positive environment to learn, try new health behaviors, have fun and get better.
