Ready to Rebuild Your Health

Surgeries and medical procedures mark only the beginning of your cardiac treatment and recovery process. We will show you how to minimize your risk of future heart-related problems, stay heart-healthier longer and re-take control of your life. Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program can help if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Heart attack
  • Angina/chest pain
  • Angioplasty or stent procedure
  • Bypass surgery
  • Valve replacement/repair
  • Heart transplant
At Island Hospital, we can offer you a comprehensive, medically supervised Cardiac Rehabilitation Program that is tailored by specially trained healthcare professionals to meet your individual needs. Our aim is to help you stabilize, slow and even reverse the progression of heart disease so you can lead an active, productive life.


Exercise is a Big Part of Recovery


At Island Hospital you will find a safe, supervised environment to give you the confidence and support you need to increase activity and exercise levels. You will work with staff trained and experienced in exercise physiology and cardiac care to develop an individual plan geared to:

  • Improve your physical fitness
  • Increase your energy level and well-being
  • Strengthen your heart and reduce risk of future heart-related problems
  • Trigger weight loss
  • Reduce your blood pressure and cholesterol levels


... But it's Not the Whole Story

Managing heart disease is a life-long, lifestyle issue and Island Hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is designed to help you make changes to be healthier and feel better.

You will learn how altering your diet and taking steps to reduce stress can limit your risk of future heart problems. We will help you understand what your medications do and why you are taking them.

We will work with you and your family members to identify and deal with anxiety, fear, depression and other possible psychological effects of heart disease so they will not delay or derail your recovery.
