Phase III Cardiac Rehabilitation Maintenance Program
Follow up care is available to those who have completed the formal, more structured cardiac rehabilitation program. The goal of this self-pay program is to encourage patients to continue the exercise learned during the initial phase of the program. It is also available to individuals who have not attended the structured program but would like to increase their activity level in a safe environment under the supervision of a cardiac nurse.
Cardiac rehabilitation services are available at Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital. A physician referral is required to participate in this program.
