Cardiac Rehabilitation

If you’ve had a heart attack, heart condition or stroke, you want to do everything you can to take care of yourself. That’s what rehabilitation is all about – helping you return safely and quickly to the routines and activities of your everyday life.

Beacon’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program provides a comprehensive, individualized approach to rehabilitation for patients with heart disease. Treatment interventions include: monitored exercise, behavior change counseling to assist patients with lifestyle changes, and education of risk factor modification and reduction of symptoms. 

Using the Six-Minute Walk test, Depression test, Quality of life test, and Peak MET levels test as measurements, Beacon Cardiac Rehabilitation patients see higher improvement compared to state and national levels.

Conditions and Treatments

People of all ages with heart conditions can benefit from cardiac and stroke rehabilitation. Your doctor may refer you for cardiac rehab if you have or have had a:

More than Exercise

Our cardiac rehabilitation facilities have a variety of exercise equipment – free weights, treadmills, stationary bikes, rowing machines, stretch bands – to help improve your cardiovascular endurance, strength and function.

But cardiac rehabilitation is more than just exercise. We’ll also work with you to find ways to stay healthy as you live your daily life. We’ll counsel you about:

  • The types of activities that are best for you
  • How to exercise at home or at the gym
  • How to encourage healthy eating habits for your specific needs and condition
