Phase I Cardiac Rehabilitation is exercise and education provided during the hospital stay following an acute cardiac event.

Phase II Cardiac Rehabilitation begins as early as two weeks after discharge from the hospital. Depending on physician’s recommendation, patients exercise 2-3 times a week for up to 36 sessions. Blood pressure and telemetry (heart rate & rhythm) is monitored throughout the course of exercise. An individualized exercise program is prescribed and education is offered specific to patient needs.

Phase III Cardiac Rehabilitation is an optional program for those who complete their Phase II Rehab program. It is a private-pay option (not covered by insurance) that allows for ongoing exercise and monitoring in an effort to maintain physiological gains from Phase II Cardiac Rehab or Pulmonary Rehab.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is for patients diagnosed with lung disease and impairment. It is typically offered two times per week for 36 sessions. Patients receive individualized exercise instruction and education, and heart rate and oxygen saturation levels are routinely monitored.

Smoking Cessation
You already know that quitting smoking is one of the most difficult things to do. You’ll find the support, guidance and information you need to get started on the path to being smoke free—the path that leads to better health. We’ll provide information about different smoking cessation aids to help with the physical aspects of nicotine withdrawal and help you develop mental strategies to ease the transition from being a smoker to being free from tobacco’s hold.
