Cardiac Rehab

Strengthen Your Heart

Whether you’ve had a heart attack, heart surgery or other heart procedure, getting back to your life can be difficult. As part of Saint Vincent Hospital’s dedication to your overall health, our Cardiovascular Prevention and Fitness Program helps you reduce cardiovascular risk factors and improve your cardiovascular health and fitness.

Individualized Treatment for You

Every person — and every heart — is different. As part of this 12-week, medically prescribed and supervised program, our cardiovascular rehab specialists work with you and your doctors to design a program that gets you up and moving after a heart attack or heart procedure. It’s important that your plan reflect your lifestyle, so we partner with you on everything from exercise to nutrition so that your overall health improves as your heart recovers and returns to normal.

Benefits of the cardiac rehab program include:

  • Improved cardiovascular fitness
  • Improved sense of well-being
  • Lower risk of cardiovascular disease progression
  • Reduced risk of heart attack or other cardiovascular problems

Program participants meet with our cardiovascular team for an assessment, and then everyone works together to build a treatment plan consisting of:

  • Education (nutrition, weight management, smoking cessation and more)
  • Physical activity
  • Supervision
  • Counseling
