The doctors, nurses and excercise physiologists who make up our cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation team hold a variety of certifications in specialties such as clinical exercise and clinical exercise physiology, advanced cardiac life support, exercise test technology, registered dietitian studies, and personal training.
You will attend group exercise sessions three times per week and monthly educational sessions. Each patient is under the care of the program's medical director, registered nurses, exercise physiologists, and his or her own doctor. During exercise sessions, your cardiac status, symptom management and assessment with exercise are continuously monitored by telemetry. Regular progress reports are made available to the referring physician. Upon completion of the medically supervised exercise program, you'll receive instructions on an individual maintenance exercise program.
Maintenance exercise sessions, which are supervised by our highly qualified ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) trained staff, are held several times per week for those who have completed their preliminary cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation program and wish to maintain their progress.
