Cardiac Rehab

Personalized Programs to Improve Heart Health

The cardiac rehab program at Horizon Health is specifically designed to meet the individual needs of each patient recovering from a variety of cardiac conditions occurring in the last 12 months. Conditions include:

  • Heart failure
  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Stable angina pectoris
  • Heart valve repair/replacement
  • Heart or heart-lung transplant
  • Angioplasty
  • Arrhythmia

There are three phases of cardiac rehab:

  • Phase 1 - Rehabilitation takes place in the hospital, immediately following a procedure or event. (Not available at Horizon Health)
  • Phase 2 - Begins after hospital discharge and focuses on aerobic exercise, education, and counseling for 12 – 36 weeks. Phase 2 is staffed by our cardiac nurses who monitor patients via telemetry, take vitals, and instruct in safe exercise progression utilizing the rehab department equipment.
  • Phase 3 - Supervised cardiac weight training and aerobic exercise following Phase 2, with vitals monitored throughout exercise.
