Florida Hospital Waterman’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is a medically supervised program to help you recover after a heart attack, from other forms of heart disease, or after surgery to treat heart disease. Cardiac rehabilitation is divided into phases that involve various levels of monitored exercise, nutritional counseling, emotional support, and education about lifestyle changes to reduce your risks of heart problems.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a customized program of exercise and education. Cardiac rehabilitation programs significantly increase your chances of survival. Recommended by both the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, the goals of cardiac rehabilitation are to help you regain strength, to prevent your condition from worsening and to reduce your risk of future heart problems. These goals can add up to a better quality of life.
If you've had a heart attack or heart surgery, or if you have another heart condition, ask your doctor about joining our cardiac rehabilitation program. You're likely to come out of our program feeling better than before.
