At Brandywine Hospital, we’re all heart. Our cardiac rehabilitation services help people living with heart disease or who are recovering from a cardiac event like a heart attack or bypass surgery build endurance and strength. But it’s not all about the body’s strongest muscle. Our program looks at the whole person, creating an individual plan that combines supervised exercise, education and lifestyle changes specific to each patient based on their age and abilities.
Brandywine Hospital is proud to offer an individualized and personalized cardiac rehabilitation treatment plan, including evaluation and instruction on physical activity, nutrition, stress management and other health related areas. If you have had one for the following diagnoses you may be eligible to participate:
- Heart Attack
- Coronary artery angioplasty or stents
- Open heart surgery such as coronary bypass or valve surgery
- Heart failure
- Heart transplantation
The benefits of cardiac rehabilitation include living longer, lessening your chances for another heart attack, controlling heart disease symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath, stopping or reversing damage to your blood vessels in your heart, lessening the physical and emotional effects of heart disease, improving your stamina and strength, getting you back to your usual activities such as work and hobbies and improving your confidence and well-being.
