The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at St. Luke's Hospital will expose patients to new information about living a healthier and more rewarding lifestyle. Many patients are able to take this information and expertise and achieve functional levels that exceed what they were capable of prior to the cardiac event. The process is not easy, but through hard work, personalized education and support from the dedicated, multidisciplinary staff, patients have a better chance of overcoming a cardiac event.
St. Luke's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program covers many diagnoses: stents, valve surgery and heart transplants. Previously, only chest pain, heart attack in the past year or bypass in the past year were covered. This expanded definition for rehabilitative care will allow more patients to have access to supervised exercise, education, and counseling programs that were not available before.
