Who is on the Cardiac Rehab team?
The Cardiac Rehabilitation team draws from a wide array of health care professionals, which may include registered nurses, exercise physiologists, registered dietitians and physicians. Your physicians are also provided with information about your recovery and progress.
What kind of exercise will I be doing?
Cardiac Rehab includes activities such as, treadmill walking, stationary bicycle riding, arm cycling, and strength training exercises. You may also receive an individualized home exercise plan to help you maintain your progress on your own.
Is this treatment covered by my insurance?
Cardiac Rehab is covered by most insurance providers. The amount of coverage depends on your provider and policy. We can help you contact your insurance company to ask about coverage before you start.
How can I get started?
After we receive your referral from a physician, we will contact you to schedule an initial appointment. During the first appointment you will receive a one-on-one session with a member of the cardiac rehab team and become oriented to the facility. You will also then be scheduled for your exercise classes.
