What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?
Cardiac Rehab is a medically supervised program that provides exercise, education, and support to those living with heart and vascular disease.
Our program is held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with several class times throughout the day, enabling patients to find a time that is convenient for their schedule. It is run by a team of exercise physiologists and supervising physicians in a group setting. The group setting supports, inspires and motivates patients to improve their heart health.
Is Cardiac Rehab for me?
You are a candidate for Cardiac Rehab if you:

- Have recently had a heart attack
- Have recently had a heart surgery (including, but not limited to, stents, bypass, or valve surgery)
- Are living with chronic angina (chest pain)
- Are living with chronic heart failure
The program includes:
Your first session will be one-on-one with a staff member to discuss your health history, set personalized goals, and develop an individualized exercise prescription. During each subsequent session, you will engage in an hour of supervised exercise while wearing a heart monitor. Staff will monitor your vital signs, symptoms, and exertion levels.
