The Cardiac Rehabilitation program at St. Mary Mercy Hospital offers patients a monitored and supervised program to recover from a cardiac event and to learn heart healthy lifestyles to improve their overall health and reduce the risk of a second heart attack.
Our program is designed for people who have experienced a heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, angioplasty, stent placement, heart valve repair or replacement, have heart failure, heart or heart and lung transplant or experience stable angina.
The program includes:
- Monitored and supervised exercise sessions tailored to your abilities and needs
- Educational presentations on a variety of health topics
- Nutritional counseling
- Stress management
In Phase II, you will begin a monitored, outpatient exercise and education program with three one-hour sessions per week. Our qualified staff determines your exercise intensity and will lead you through your exercise session. Your heart rate and rhythm and blood pressure will be monitored throughout exercise on various equipment.
We will also provide you with an individualized home exercise program to assist you in maintaining your cardiovascular fitness and lower your cardiovascular risk factors.
Phase III is a supervised, maintenance program designed for participants who want to continue to strengthen their cardiovascular health. Participants benefit from exercising in a medically supervised program with flexible hours. The program is structured for individuals who can exercise independently, and who may benefit from the comradery and support of a group setting while remaining in a medically supervised environment.
