For a free physician referral or more information, call TriStar MedLine® at (800) 242-5662.

We provide a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments for cardiovascular diseases and emergencies. However, our heart services do not end with lifesaving care. We also offer cardiac rehabilitation to help patients return to a full life and enjoy improved health after a heart procedure or serious cardiac event, such as a heart attack or heart failure.

Through our three-phase cardiac rehab program, you will learn how to manage:

  • Diet and nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Medications
  • Risk factors
  • Stress and anxiety

Phase one: inpatient rehab

Rehabilitation starts after treatment, while you are still in the hospital. Our team will assess your health and customize a recovery program to help improve your mental and physical strength. You will begin physical therapy at the hospital, which may include:

  • Assisted walking
  • Stationary biking
  • Range of motion exercises

Phase two: outpatient cardiac rehab

Outpatient rehabilitation helps patients continue their exercise program. However, in this phase, we also focus on building self-confidence and ownership of the recovery process.

Patients typically attend one-hour sessions, three times a week for twelve weeks. These sessions are supervised and monitored. You will work with physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists and nutritionists to develop healthy living habits.

Phase three: independent care

Phase three focuses on independent care outside of the hospital. As you return home and transition out of outpatient rehab, we will prepare you to manage your heart health in day-to-day life. We will encourage and equip you to:

  • Continue exercising
  • Develop a healthy lifestyle in a less structured environment
  • Keep monitoring your heart health moving forward
