Cardiac Rehabilitation

TreadmillSt. Luke’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program empowers patients to improve their heart health and prevent future disease through education, exercise and unwavering support. St. Luke’s is proud to be one of the nation’s programs certified by American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). We offer our patients peace of mind in knowing that their heart is in capable, caring hands. 

At St. Luke’s, we believe in the power of many. Our family of certified dietitians work together with our rehabilitation specialists to design a customized cardiac program for each patient. Our collaborative approach doesn’t stop there. The team also works closely with each patient’s referring physician, submitting reports and sharing any irregularities, including new signs and symptoms.
