Through a cooperative partnership between Woodlawn Health and one of the most respected regional cardiology groups, we provide on-site cardiology services each week. Staff cardiologists with St. Vincent Medical Group of Indianapolis provide a Heart Clinic every Tuesday plus two Fridays per month. The cardiologists bring a broad array of cardiology expertise ranging from general cardiology, echocardiography, stress echo, nuclear cardiology, and other heart related services.
Cardiac Rehabilitation is a program dedicated to helping you improve your cardiovascular health. The program consists of exercise on various cardiovascular machines while a nurse monitors your heart rate, blood pressure and guides you through rehabilitation. Exercises are tailored to meet your specific needs according to age and physical condition. Our goal is to work closely with your cardiologist and/or family physician to optimize a safe program for you. Cardiac rehabilitation can:
- Increase your chances of surviving a heart attack or other heart problems.
- Increase your ability to be active and exercise by improving strength, stamina, and endurance.
- Help you return to work sooner.
- Help you get back to a normal lifestyle.
- Improve overall health and well-being.
It includes exercise training and education in heart-healthy living along with heart and vital sign monitoring. The program is run by a team of healthcare providers who are specially trained to treat people with heart disease. It takes place in an outpatient clinic facility either in an individual or group setting. Programs often last 8 to 12 weeks, meeting 3 days per week for 1 hour sessions.
