Mercy Regional Health Center

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation at Mercy Regional is an individualized outpatient program designed to help people who have had a heart attack or heart surgery improve their quality of life — and reduce the risk of another event.

Heart disease often causes intense feelings, prompting worries about your job, your family and your future. With the help of rehabilitation, you can resume your life knowing that you are working to control your risk and become healthier and stronger.

How does it work?
Cardiac rehabilitation helps you set heart-health goals by teaching you about risk factors and how to control them through education, exercise and support.

You will learn ways to reduce your risk of recurrent heart problems, including:

  • Heart-healthy eating
  • Daily exercise
  • Stress management
  • Blood pressure control
  • Quitting smoking
  • Medication use
  • Weight-control strategies

With the help of our staff, you'll learn how to make a lifelong commitment to healthy choices.
