Cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) is a medically supervised program that helps improve the health and quality of life of people who have heart problems through exercise, education, and understanding.
Cardiac rehabilitation involves a long term commitment from the patient and a team of health care providers. Our team includes doctors (such as your primary care doctor, your surgeon, and a cardiologist who will monitor your plan and progress), specially trained cardiac rehab nurses, and dietitians or nutritionists. This team also includes a care coordinator who will track your care and navigate insurance concerns. Learn more about Memorial’s cardiac rehabilitation here »
