Our Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program works with those who suffer from lung disease or are recovering from cardiac surgery and recent heart problems. We aim to boost your quality of life through physician-approved exercise, dietary and medication education, stress management and support.
Our nationally certified program takes a well-rounded approach to helping patients return to an active and vibrant lifestyle. Your strength and endurance is increased with supervised physical activity, while we equip you with the necessary tools to prevent future cardiac events. You will also learn how to live in recovery with safe heart and lung healthy exercises you can do at home.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to aid respiratory patients with finding relief for symptoms like tightness of the chest, shortness of breath and general fatigue associated with conditions such as emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD.
