Cardiac Rehabilitation Program

What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?

The Sky Lakes Cardiac Rehab program provides a tailored exercise and education plan for patients recovering from a cardiac event (heart attack, heart failure, heart surgery, etc).

Your healthcare specialist will thoroughly walk through how to care for your heart’s health moving forward, including a plan for exercise, diet, and managing stress.

This program includes meeting two times a week for 24 to 36 visits and includes 12 education sessions.

Why Cardiac Rehab?

Treating a cardiac event is only the first step in recovery. Studies have shown that participating in a cardiac rehab program is one of the most effective ways to get back to living a full and active life.

You Are Not Alone

As you partner with healthcare providers, family, and other patients in their rehab journey, you will have a strong support system to keep you on the path to better health.
