A Medically Monitored Program
Our Cardiac Rehab Program requires a physician prescription and is tailored to meet your specific rehabilitation needs stemming from a cardiovascular related health event. The Program consists of 36 physician-supervised exercise sessions with continuous electrocardiograph monitoring. Our cardiac rehab specialists have advanced training in advanced cardiac rehabiliation. We stay in regular communication with your referring physician.

Our maintenance program is available to patients who have received medical clearance. The cardiac maintenance program includes an exercise regimen that builds upon the progress you’ve made during the first phase of your cardiac rehabilitation.
