Living a heart healthy life doesn’t start and end with a single step. It’s a journey, which sometimes includes lifestyle changes that can be difficult to sustain. From cardiac rehabilitation, to support groups, to community outreach and education, ProMedica provides a wide spectrum of support services designed to help patients stay on course and succeed.
Committed to improving cardiovascular health
The comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program at ProMedica is committed to helping patients improve their cardiovascular health and develop healthy behaviors that will become a way of life.
Our team of experienced professionals assists physician-referred patients in developing an individualized cardiac rehabilitation program after a cardiac event or when a need develops to reduce cardiac risk factors.
External Counterpulsation Therapy (ECP)
A non-invasive therapy that helps restore healthy circulation for individuals with inoperable symptoms of angina (i.e., chest pain) from heart disease. Symptoms from congestive heart failure may also be improved through the use of this therapy. For cardiac patients who are not surgical candidates, ECP may provide an option to improve their ability to perform daily activities and live a more normal lifestyle.
Home Exercise Clinic
Available for select cardiac patients or patients at risk for heart disease. Patients whose physicians have determined to be safe to exercise independently at home may be admitted to this program. Participants record home exercise habits and report regularly to the cardiac rehabilitation therapist. Periodic electrocardiogram-monitored exercise sessions are performed at one of our cardiac rehabilitation facilities to update the home exercise instructions. In addition, participants receive educational materials to learn about ways to prevent the progression of coronary artery disease.
