Legacy provides the complete circle of care in cardiovascular with a cardiac rehabilitation program certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). Our cardiac rehabilitation program uses education, exercise and emotional support for patients who have had a heart-related event. This could include those at high risk for a heart attack, heart surgery or cardiac intervention. For heart patients, we want to help you reach your full potential and return to the work and leisure activities you enjoy, sooner.
These programs of heart health education and progressive exercise are designed to:
Increase cardiac fitness
Educate about cardiovascular disease
Reduce risk factors
Assist in returning to work
Promote psychological adjustment
We also offer the latest methods of support for patients in end-stage heart failure. Although medical therapy is proving increasingly successful, coordination of care for those needing transplantation or devices is readily provided by our cardiology and surgical staff.
