The Cardiac Rehabilitation Center is a component of Holy Name's comprehensive Cardiovascular Service. Featuring state-of-the-art technology, a highly skilled staff of cardiac experts, and a comfortable, friendly environment, the Cardiac Rehabilitation Center's award-winning program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Under the direction of a board-certified cardiologist, the cardiac rehab team—which includes certified cardiac registered nurses and exercise physiologists—develop a closely monitored exercise regimen and lifestyle management program personalized to each patient. A dietitian, diabetes educator, pharmacist and psychologist provide additional counseling and knowledge to assist individuals in their recovery.
Whether you are recuperating from angioplasty, need to improve your heart's functioning, or want to reduce your risk factors for cardiovascular disease, Holy Name Medical Center's Cardiac Rehabilitation Center has a program suited to your needs. Your physician or a Holy Name Medical Center cardiologist can advise you as to which program is appropriate.
Holy Name's first-rate gym is equipped with treadmills, bikes, Airdynes, rowing machines, NuStep machines, elliptical, arm ergometer and free weights. Locker rooms and showers are provided for patient convenience.
- Phase I is a 12-week program of one-hour sessions held three times a week. It is designed specifically for patients with stable angina and those recovering from a heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, valve replacement, heart transplant, or interventional procedures such as angioplasty and/or stent placement.
- Phase II focuses on recovery and wellness, and encompasses a closely monitored exercise regimen and lifestyle management program. It is covered by most health insurances.
- Phase III is a self-pay program designed for patients who have completed the phase II monitored program and for those interested in preventing heart disease. Anyone who has one or more of the following risk factors for cardiovascular disease is eligible: family history of cardiovascular disease, elevated cholesterol, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, smoking, physical inactivity and a stressful lifestyle. Patients come three times a week to exercise in an atmosphere that provides knowledge, supports changes, promotes perseverance, embraces hope, and incorporates laughter as they move toward wellness.
A physician referral and medical clearance from your private physician or one of Holy Name's cardiologists is required for participation in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.
