Cardiac Rehabilitation. Helping You Move Forward With Confidence.
Excellence runs throughout our heart and vascular program, including our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.
According to a study published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology cardiac rehabilitation raises your chances of surviving at least three years after a heart attack by more than 50 percent! That’s why it’s important to choose your rehabilitation program carefully.
Everything you need.
If you’ve had a cardiac event, or you’ve been diagnosed with heart disease, the Cardiac Rehabilitation Center at St. Luke’s has everything you need to live healthier through an advanced exercise, education and support program.
Our cardiac rehabilitation program will teach you how to be more active and give you the tools you’ll need to make lifestyle changes that can lead to a stronger heart and better health.
The St. Luke's Cardiac Rehabilitation Center is equipped with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, including treadmills, elliptical cross-trainers, theratubes, exercycles and even a walking track.
Nurses and support staff carefully monitor our patients and oversee individual exercise programs.
