Cardiac Rehabilitation Services

CMC Cardiac Rehabilitation gives patients the resources to recover from a cardiac event and reduce the risk of advancing heart disease. Our program has two phases–education for patients and families who are in the hospital recovering from a cardiac event or cardiac surgery, and outpatient monitored exercise programs. Our goal is to help patients make a full recovery so they can return to an active, healthy lifestyle.
