Cardiac rehabilitation

Phase II cardiac rehab or outpatient cardiac rehabilitation

Phase II cardiac rehab or outpatient cardiac rehabilitation is a physician-referred, professionally monitored exercise program that focuses on managing and modifying risk factors for heart disease in individuals who had a heart attack, angioplasty or stents, bypass surgery, stable angina, heart valve repair/replacement, heart/lung transplant and congestive heart failure.

Individualized service

Telemetry-monitored sessions last approximately 60 minutes and are typically scheduled three days weekly, for up to 36 total sessions or 12 weeks. All exercise programs are created with a focus on each individual’s physical limitations and current level of functioning.

Education

Education sessions include diet management, weight management, home exercise safety and progression, stress management, medications, and smoking cessation as well as blood pressure and cholesterol standards.

Insurance coverage

Phase II cardiac rehab is generally covered by most insurance companies (Medicare, Medicaid and other private insurance companies), but patients are encouraged to check with their insurance plan to determine co-pays or other requirements.

Healthy Hearts

Healthy Hearts is a program offered to community members seeking supervised exercise. Healthy Hearts is a maintenance exercise program that includes professionally guided and supervised exercise sessions with various levels of monitoring. This program is for any patient referred by a physician or as a transition to non-telemetry monitored exercise after phase II cardiac rehab.

Is Healthy Hearts right for you?

Healthy Hearts participation may be appropriate if you have or are being treated for heart disease, congestive heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, peripheral artery disease, COPD, overweight or obesity/morbid obesity. However, anyone desiring a professionally supervised exercise program may participate with a physician referral.

Healthy Hearts is typically not covered by most insurance plans; this program is provided at an affordable monthly cost.
