Cardiac Rehabilitation Services at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital are designed to meet the needs of patients recovering from a heart event such as a heart attack, stenting, heart surgery, or stable angina.

Your health is important to us. Our services also benefit patients with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and lifestyle-related conditions such as obesity, tobacco abuse, or high stress levels. Our nationally accredited program includes registered nurses, an exercise physiologist, a pharmacist and a registered dietitian.

Our program includes:

  • Supervised exercise sessions
  • Personalized exercise programs
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Stress management
  • Education on risk factor reduction

Benefits of cardiac rehabilitation:

  • Recognize the symptoms of heart disease and when to seek medical attention
  • Begin a personalized exercise program designed to fit your needs
  • Work toward your ideal body weight and cholesterol level through physical activity and good nutrition
  • Return to your regular work and leisure activities
  • Reduce your risk factors and chances of a future heart attack
  • Adopt a healthy lifestyle with the help of your cardiac rehabilitation team

A doctor’s referral is required for rehab services. Ask your doctors when you can begin. You may be required to take an exercise stress test as a baseline for your exercise program. Most insurance carriers cover the costs of our cardiac rehab services. Your carrier will be contacted to verify your benefits. You may be responsible for a co-payment.
