Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation is about improving your quality of life after heart disease. We can help with lifestyle changes to improve physical fitness, nutrition and disease education.

The Cardiac Rehabilitation program features experienced nurses and exercise physiologists who work with patients to design individually tailored programs that focus on exercise and healthy lifestyle changes to aid in recovery from heart surgery, cardiac procedures, or chronic heart conditions.

Most insurance plans cover participation in medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation programs. Garden City Hospital offers cardiac rehabilitation on the hospital’s campus.
