Improve Your Heart Health
Did you know that Cardiac Rehabilitation is an outpatient program that may help improve your health if you have cardiac disease? Patients with heart problems, including those recovering from bypass surgery, a stent, or a heart attack, often need assistance in improving their heart health and returning to a more active life.
