Heartworks Cardiac Rehabilitation
Heartworks, our cardiac rehabilitation program, is available for individuals who have heart disease, or who have a high risk for heart disease. Cardiac rehabilitation is the process by which these individuals work with our cardiac rehabilitation team to reach the highest level of physical, social and emotional well-being compatible with their physical abilities.
The program is supervised by highly skilled cardiac registered nurses. Your doctor and members of the cardiac rehabilitation team will develop an individually designed exercise prescription specifically for you. You will perform aerobic exercises on treadmills, bicycles and rowers as well as perform flexibility and stretching exercises before and after your exercise routine.
Your doctor must refer you to the program. We can assist you in obtaining this information from your doctor. For more information on our Heartworks program, please call the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department at 860.585.3580.
