Cardiac / Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Our Department

The Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Van Diest Medical Center is a program for those with a history of a recent heart attack or chest pain; bypass or heart valve surgery; or coronary angioplasty, with or without stents.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a program for those with COPD.
 
A multidisciplinary team approach is a unique aspect of cardiac/pulmonary rehab.  Participants are provided with an exercise regime prescribed by their physician and supervised by Registered Nurses.  Education is provided to participants related to healthy living, diet modification, stress management and disease management.
 
The length of the cardiac or pulmonary rehab programs varies, depending on the participant’s abilities and progression in the program.  Cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation is covered by most insurance companies.
