Our Cardiac Rehab department will help you to:

  • Regain strength to return to your usual activities
  • Develop a healthy diet
  • Excercise regularly
  • Help manage stress and your emotions

Cardiac Rehab is covered through most insurance companies and Medicare, depending upon the specific diagnosis. The length of the program varies for each individual. After a patient has graduated from the Cardiac Rehab program, they are able to continue they’re rehabilitation by participating in our Cardiac Maintenance program. This program is offered at a minimal cost.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation takes place on an individual basis. Patients suffering from chronic lung problems work to expand their lung capacity to its fullest potential so they can achieve an optimal lifestyle. This often involves low-impact aerobic exercise sessions and counseling.

A physician’s referral is necessary for this program. Please contact Vicki Lindberg, RN or Sara Cameron, RN at 402-685-5601 for additional information.
