Cardiac Rehabilitation

Comprehensive Approach

Florida Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program is designed to educate patients and family members during — and after — hospitalization for a cardiac event. The program is divided into three phases — education, monitored exercise and maintenance — and provides a comprehensive approach for patients to learn how to build cardiac strength.

Phase I — Education

Phase I is an in-hospital program where patients learn about their diagnosis, procedure and how to care for themselves in the immediate post-operative or post-event period. Continued education continues throughout the next phases of the rehabilitation program via videos, classes and handouts.

Phase II — Monitored Exercise

This is an EKG-monitored wellness program that begins shortly after hospitalization for cardiac patients. The patient’s exercise routine is customized to meet their particular needs and goals. Electrocardiogram (EKG), blood pressure and oxygen-saturation monitoring is provided at regular intervals. Additionally, our on-going classes offer information and support as patients continue to modify their lifestyle:

  • Heart function
  • Secondary prevention of risk factors
  • Stress management
  • Support group
  • Nutrition
  • Smoking cessation

Medicare covers certain diagnoses including bypass surgery, stable angina or a heart attack within one year of occurrence. Our team will be happy to talk to you about your diagnosis and insurance benefits.

Phase III — Maintenance Program

This advanced supervised fitness program continues to build cardiac strength through the use of exercise equipment, recreational activities and group workouts. It is also a bridge to an independent wellness program.

How to Register

To register for the program, talk to a cardiac specialist first. A prescription from your doctor will be required to enroll. Cardiac Rehabilitation programs are offered at Florida Hospital Orlando and Florida Hospital Celebration.
