The Crossing Rivers Health cardiac rehabilitation department has qualified clinical exercise physiologists providing expertise in exercise programming for persons with a wide variety of health conditions.
Programs offered include:
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 have had a heart attack, angioplasty or stents, bypass surgery, stable angina, heart valve repair/replacement, heart/lung transplant and congestive heart failure.
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.
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.

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) exercise is designed for people who suffer from leg pain or cramping in the lower extremities due to intermittent claudication (IC) during activity.
This is a physician referred program in which you must have a face-to-face visit with your physician to obtain a referral.
If you suffer from and are limited by intermittent claudication (IC) pain during activity and your physician has diagnosed you with Peripheral Artery Disease, this program can help you.
PAD exercise is a series of sessions over 12 weeks lasting 45 - 60 minutes per session, with the recommended number of sessions being 36. After 36 sessions, there is a recommended 8 week PAD step-down program.
Each session involves either walking on a treadmill or our indoor track to allow each person to achieve symptom-limited claudication.
Each session is supervised by our exercise physiologists, who have knowledge in appropriate progression of your program to achieve optimal benefits.
Yes, Medicare considers PAD exercise programming a covered benefit with an allowable 36 visits. However, you may be responsible for deductibles and co-payments. Checking with your insurance regarding deductibles and co-payments is recommended.
Prior authorization is required for insurances other than Medicare.
