Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

Guided Education and Training for a Healthier Heart

The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center enables individuals with heart disease/heart attack, and those recuperating from cardiac surgery, to efficiently and effectively resume an active, healthy lifestyle. The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Montefiore Nyack Hospital is tailored to optimize the heart health of its participants while increasing strength and endurance. Following a physician’s referral, each participant receives a thorough evaluation before beginning exercise.

Working with a patient’s cardiologist, our medical director, and team of clinical exercise physiologists will develop an extensive individualized plan of care to address each patient’s unique needs. With review by our program’s Medical Director, a clinical exercise physiologist considers each patient’s specific needs and goals in order to develop an optimal cardiovascular rehabilitation program.
