Cardiac rehab at Edgerton:
- It works. According to a study by Mayo Clinic, cardiac rehab raises your likelihood of surviving at least three years after a heart attack by more than 50 percent.
- It motivates. Our staff will help you set ambitious, yet achievable goals. They’ll monitor your progress in one-on-one meetings and continue to adapt the program to meet your changing needs. You can exercise on your own or in a group setting for added motivation.
- It’s comprehensive. In addition to exercise, our cardiac rehab program offers education on heart disease prevention and healthy lifestyle changes, with access to a support network of peers and medical professionals.
- It pays off. A commitment of three to four hours each week will result in reduced symptoms, improved stamina, an enhanced quality of life and the ability to return to work and leisure activities.
