CHRISTUS Cardiac Rehab

By CHRISTUS St Vincent 

Our Approach

Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program consists of up to 36 sessions of monitored exercise and education. The sessions are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Phase II cardiac Rehabilitation is for those who have experienced:

  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • Cardiac surgery, or have
  • Stable angina
  • Cardiac stent
  • Angioplasty procedure
  • Valve repair/replacement
  • Heart transplant

Making a commitment to change your lifestyle can be difficult, but with the help of the cardiac rehabilitation team, you are more likely to stay motivated.

Multi-disciplinary Team

The program consists of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals: a medical director, nurse, exercise physiologist, respiratory therapist, rehab counselor, and a dietitian. Each individual is involved in assisting you to your optimal level of health and fitness. Your cardiologist will receive a copy of your pre- and post-rehab evaluation, which includes an evaluation of your body composition as well as a full physical assessment. A report of your progress will be sent to your physician upon completion of the program.
