Your physician will determine when the outpatient program is right for you, and at that time submit a referral. Sessions usually begin 10 to 14 days after discharge from the hospital and are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for up to 12 weeks. Education sessions are held Wednesdays. These sessions cover topics regarding nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation, stress/relaxation, medications, signs and symptoms, and diabetic screening. During the monitored exercise sessions our team will provide the encouragement and education needed to return to a heart healthy lifestyle.
