Your Care Doesn’t End When You’re Discharged from the Hospital

Cardiac-Rehab-Rose-DenverThe Heart & Vascular Center at Rose is committed to not only treating our patients' initial heart problems but being by your side as you recover. Our comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program helps patients who have been treated for:

  • Chest Pain
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
  • Coronary Stenting
  • Heart Attack
  • Heart Valve Surgery

Our program is designed to help patients maintain their heart health, gain strength and stamina, return to work faster, lower blood pressure and exercise in a supervised setting.

What to Expect

A typical session includes 40 minutes of aerobic activity and 20-25 minutes of stretching and strength exercises. Each Wednesday, our team offers heart education on various topics such as cholesterol, dietary guidelines, high blood pressure and cardiac medications.

We offer two levels of cardiac rehabilitation:

Phase 2 Cardiac Rehabilitation

Phase 2 is acute rehabilitation for patients recovering from myocardial infarction (MI), stenting, chest pain, open heart surgery or heart transplant. This program typically is covered by a patient's insurance.

Phase 3 Cardiac Maintenance

This level is for patients who finish acute rehabilitation and would like to continue to exercise in a safe, monitored setting. This is an out-of-pocket, self-pay program. Phase 3 Cardiac Maintenance also is open to those who have two or more risk factors for cardiovascular disease, as diagnosed by a physician.
