Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Bothwell Regional Health Center offers patients cardiac rehabilitation at the main hospital. Cardiac Rehabilitation is a four-phase, medically supervised exercise therapy program designed to help people with heart disease return to a productive life, by improving their health through physical activity.
The cardiac rehab program uses a multi-disciplinary approach of structured, progressive physical activity, administered by trained therapists and nurses. Program participants and their families are educated about recognizing, preventing and treating cardiovascular disease.
Special emphasis is placed on modifying risk factors and recovering from the physical and psychosocial aspects of heart disease.
Outpatient cardiac rehabilitation is for patients who have been diagnosed with heart disease, including those who have suffered a heart attack or had heart surgery. Another phase of the program is applicable to those with cardiovascular risk factors, but who haven’t necessarily been diagnosed with a heart disease, including spouses of patients.
