More About Cardiac Rehabilitation

Maury Regional Medical Center's cardiac rehabilitation program is supervised by a cardiologist and staffed with a registered nurse and exercise physiologist who monitor the activity of your heart during exercise and educate you on the risk factors for heart disease. During this time, your exercise level will be gradually and safely increased to strengthen your heart.

Phase I

The first phase of cardiac rehabilitation is for inpatients that have either had open-heart surgery, heart attack or an interventional procedure.

Phase II

The second phase is conducted on an outpatient basis for those who have had open-heart surgery, a heart attack, stable angina or other heart-related problems. A physician's order is required. You will attend rehabilitation three times per week for a period of six weeks and will be in a class with other patients who have heart disease. Patients are given personal instruction and their heart rate is closely monitored during exercise. Phase II rehabilitation is offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for one hour. Patients may choose from several one-hour classes that are offered throughout the day.

Insurance reimbursement for Phase II varies based on medical condition and insurance provider. Patients are encouraged to contact their insurance company for more information.

Phase III

The third phase is for those who have completed Phase II or as a self referral for people with cardiovascular risk factors. Patients do not wear a heart monitor, but the Cardiac Rehabilitation staff supervises their exercise. Phase III rehabilitation is offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There is a minimal out-of-pocket charge per month. Spouses may accompany the patient for a nominal fee. Patients may choose from one of the following times:

  Monday, Wednesday, Friday
