A consistent program of heart-healthy exercise and lifestyle modification is the key to successful cardiac rehabilitation. St. John’s Medical Center cardiac rehabilitation (cardiac rehab) provides progressive phases of exercise under medical supervision and education for cardiac patients.
Our program is designed to provide a safe and monitored exercise environment to enhance the recovery process. Patients exercise with ECG monitoring as prescribed by their physician and as their condition warrants. Exercise programs are specifically designed to meet the individual patient’s needs and goals. The cardiac rehabilitation staff is Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support (ACLS) certified and the clinic is fully equipped to handle emergency situations. Individualized education to modify risk factors is provided by health educators, nurses, physical therapists and other health care providers.
