Ms. Cheslik observed, "This study helps to demonstrate that this program is making the right impact at the right point in a patient's recovery process. The program is designed to take into account their emotional needs and help them rebuild their confidence in a supportive setting. More than two-thirds of the people who enroll in the program were referred to us by current and past patients."

The four-phase cardiac rehab program includes: Phase I, for patients who are still hospitalized after a heart attack, surgery or procedure. The outpatient component at the Cardiac Health Center includes Phase II and III, which are 12-week medically-supervised programs including monitored exercise and education including nutritional counseling, stress reduction, smoking cessation and other activities designed to reduce the patient's risk of a heart attack and promote a healthier lifestyle.
