For patients with coronary disease, the physical and emotional challenges can be great. SLCH’s Center for Cardiac Rehabilitation is dedicated to restoring health and well-being to these patients through a multidisciplinary program for both mind and body. According to the American Heart Association, cardiac rehabilitation programs can “extend overall survival” and “improve quality of life” for those with coronary issues.
You can benefit from cardiac rehabilitation if you have heart disease, congestive heart failure or have had a heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, angioplasty, valve repair or replacement, PTCA (balloon procedure), or heart or heart/lung transplant.
