Cardiac Rehabilitation

GSH Cardiac Rehabilitation is a comprehensive program providing patients with a structured exercise plan, risk factor counseling, education, and periodic evaluation. Physicians, registered dietitians, exercise physiologists and nurses work together to create an individualized recovery plan with the goal of strengthening and improving your heart while returning you to an active life.

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Good Samaritan North Health Center is accredited by the American Academy of Cardiovascular Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).

 Eligible conditions include:

  • Angina attacks
  • Angioplasty
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart attack recovery
  • Open heart surgery
  • Stent insertion
  • Valve repair or replacement

The cardiac rehabilitation program is divided into four phases:

  • Phase One begins while  the patient  still recovering in the hospital from a cardiac event or surgery.  The goal of rehabilitation during this phase is to increase activity and strength through a monitored and structured exercise program.
  • Phase Two starts after  the  patient  has returned home.  With the  physician's permission, the patient  will continue as an outpatient while advancing in the recovery plan.  Phase two includes an  assessment, tailored exercise program with supervision, cardiac monitoring and education classes.  Education classes include:
    • Cardiac risk reduction strategies
    • Developing healthy eating habits
    • Reducing stress
    • Smoking cessation (if needed)
  • Phase Three offers supervised group exercise classes - and still requires physician approval. The goal is to help move the client to an independent exercise routine in their own community environment. Most medical insurance plans DO NOT cover this program.  However, it is offered for a nominal fee.
