Phase II Cardiac Rehab is specifically for patients who have recently had a heart attack or heart surgery. Patients in this program wear heart monitors while exercising and attend education classes to learn about living with heart disease. Phase III Cardiac Rehab is for graduates of Phase II, as well as other patients whose insurance may not cover Phase II. Participants in Phase III are closely monitored during exercise and have their progression guided by our knowledgeable staff. Each participant in Phase III has an exercise program designed specifically for them.
