Our cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are physician ordered and monitored by specially trained professionals.
We create individualized treatment plans consisting of exercise therapy and education for chronic disease management. Our programs are aimed to improve quality of life through increased endurance, decreased symptoms and reduction of risk for future events or complications.
These rehabilitation programs provide more education and risk reduction guidance than a general wellness program. Both programs are covered by Medicare and most private insurance. In cases where the patient does not qualify for insurance coverage, a self-pay option is available.
