Cardiac rehabilitation is important for recovery from a heart event or heart-related diagnosis.  If you are unable to take part in an outpatient rehabilitation program, our cardiac care nurses provide services in your home.  We use specifically developed disease management protocols and a multidisciplinary team approach.  Working closely with physician and clinical specialists, our cardiac nurses monitor, educate and counsel you.  Your care will include:
