Cardiac rehab is a monitored and supervised exercise and education program that allows people who have been diagnosed with a heart condition to confidently resume a normal life as quickly as possible. People of all ages can benefit from cardiac rehabilitation. Some of the cardiac diagnoses that may benefit from cardiac rehab include:
- Heart attack
- Chronic stable angina
- Coronary artery angioplasty or stent placement
- Open heart surgery, such as coronary artery bypass or valve surgery
- Heart failure
- Heart transplant
Salem Health’s cardiac rehab program is one of the largest in Oregon and is accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Most insurance and Medicare plans cover the initial phase of cardiac rehab. Contact your insurance provider to find out about coverage and applicable copays or coinsurance fees.
