Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac rehab is a customized exercise program created specifically for your needs. It is designed to help you recover from a heart attack, other forms of heart disease or surgery to treat heart disease. Burgess Health Center’s cardiac rehab program is designed to help you improve your level of fitness and health.

Sessions, conducted at the hospital, offer the opportunity to safely and confidently increase your activity level through the structure and guidance of trained professionals. Support, motivation and quality care are provided by our staff. Your physicians will be periodically informed of your progress throughout the program.

The cardiac rehab team at Burgess provides three levels of cardiac care. Phase I begins while the patient in still in the hospital, with exercise and educational components. The Phase II program begins after the patient is released from the hospital. Patients begin to exercise under the supervision of a nurse while connected to a cardiac monitor. Once patients have graduated from the Phase II program, they are encouraged to participate in the Phase III program where they exercise in the same environment, only without the cardiac monitor.

Cardiac rehabilitation is a vital component of recovery from:

  • heart attacks
  • open heart surgery
  • angioplasty and/or stents
  • angina
  • other cardiac problems

Cardiac rehab is available to patients living in the region regardless of where their family physician practices. To learn more about the cardiac rehab program call 712-423-9304.
