Monitored and Supervised Exercise

A physical activity plan is tailored to your needs. Exercise will help improve your endurance and muscle strength, so you're better able to carry out daily activities.

Program Length

The length of your program depends upon your risk factors, insurance coverage, and doctor's order. The Phase II program usually lasts up to 3 months. All Phase II graduates are invited to participate in our follow-up assessment program and Phase III.

Insurance Coverage

Medicare and most insurance plans will pay for Cardiac Rehab. You may be responsible for a co-payment.

Phase III CARDIAC REHAB

The Phase III program is a continuation of Phase II - allowing patients to build confidence in a supervised atmosphere. Like Phase II, Phase III requires a doctor's order. The cost, while low is generally not covered by insurance.
