Cardiac Rehabilitation

Expert help puts your heart on the comeback trail.

OverviewMake A Donation

The FirstHealth Cardiac Rehab Team offers programs to help patients with heart disease adopt healthier lifestyles. The programs provide education, counseling and exercise in a friendly environment. Participants who attend regular classes develop a supportive camaraderie that helps the healing process.

For each patient, the Team designs a custom program tailored to meet the patients’ specific cardiovascular health needs and goals. Participants have had histories of:

  • Heart attack

  • Angina (chest discomfort)

  • Heart bypass

  • Valve surgery  

  • Angioplasty

  • Coronary stent

  • CHF (congestive heart failure)

  • Cardiac risk factors

Choose from our two programs

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is prescribed by your physician and may be recommended for up to 12 weeks. With committed participation, patients can achieve improved fitness level and quality of life.

The Bridge to Wellness Program, a program for prevention and progression, is designed for graduates of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program or those who do not require cardiac rehabilitation, but could benefit from professional guidance in learning to exercise safely.
