Having a heart attack or being diagnosed with a heart condition can be life-changing and frightening. The goal of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Silver Cross Hospital is to help you recover from your cardiovascular event and prevent future heart problems. Our rehabilitation program is designed to improve the functioning of your heart and lungs, strengthen your muscles, and help you gain the confidence you need to return to living a high-quality life.
Our highly trained cardiac rehabilitation nurses and exercise physiologists will review risk factors with you and discuss lifestyle changes and choices to help improve the success of your treatment. With the support and guidance of our cardiac rehabilitation team, you can return to your everyday life with a renewed, healthy outlook and strong heart.
