Cardiac Rehabilitation is designed to optimize heart patient's physical, psychological, and social functioning through exercise conditioning, strength training, diet, relaxation, education and emotional support.
The goal of Cardiac Rehab is to improve the patient's ability to carry out basic life roles, resulting in improved quality of life. The services in the unit will be monitored by a Registered Nurse who is BLS/ACLS certified.
Patients interested in participating in the Cardiac Rehabilitation program should talk with their Physician about a referral.
Any inquiries about referrals can be made by calling Sharon Simmons (270) 522-0627 or Randy Darnell at (270) 206-3640.
