Cardiac Rehabilitation

Baptist Huntingdon’s cardiac rehab program is designed to help people with cardiovascular illnesses, including coronary artery disease and heart attack, as well as people who have had coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasties, stents, heart valve surgery or repair, and heart transplants.

Is Cardiac Rehab Right for Me?

You may benefit from cardiac rehab if any of the following are true:

  • Have you been diagnosed with a cardiovascular disease?
  • Have you recently had a heart attack, coronary artery bypass surgery, heart valve surgery or angioplasty and stents?
  • Do you wish you had more energy and felt better?
  • Do you want to learn more about the disease process, what your role is and how to prevent future cardiovascular events?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider discussing cardiac rehabilitation with your physician, or call cardiac rehab for more information.

What We Offer

  • Medically supervised exercise
  • Education regarding cardiovascular illnesses and the disease process. Cardiac rehabilitation staff teach disease management to help modify risk factors, including stress.
  • The opportunity to meet with dietitians and pharmacists, as needed, for individualized counseling
  • Social interaction with other people who have cardiovascular illnesses

About the Program

The goal of cardiac rehabilitation is to return individuals, regardless of their disease process, to the level of physiological, psychological, social and emotional functioning they enjoyed before cardiovascular disease.

Staff members actively promote patients’ independence and encourage people to assume responsibility for their own risk factor modification and goal setting.

  • Program length depends on individual needs and goals.
  • Physician referral is a requirement.
  • Exercise sessions are usually three days a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and last about an hour.
  • Medicare and many insurance companies may pay for cardiac rehabilitation; however, patients should confer with their individual insurance company.
