Cardiac Rehabilitation: Building Stronger Hearts
Great River Medical Center offers three successive rehabilitation programs
for patients recovering from a cardiac event or procedure. A physician’s
referral is required for all programs.
Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase I
The first phase is provided to patients who are admitted to the hospital
for some cardiac events.
Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase II
Group cardiac rehabilitation classes meet for 90 minutes twice a week for
up to 12 weeks. The purpose of the program is to help participants strengthen
their hearts, learn about heart-healthy living and reduce fear by:
- Establishing a personalized exercise program
- Learning how to manage their conditions and prevent other occurrences
- Adjusting to the emotions that accompany heart disease
- Getting support services, if needed
Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Phase III
This program features a more independent approach to physical fitness for
those with cardiac and pulmonary conditions. It involves supervised exercise
times to improve strength, endurance and wellness.
