Emory Decatur Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program, offered within the hospital’s Wellness Center, is a multifaceted process that uses a combination of prescribed exercise, wellness education and lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of heart failure and heart disease. Our cardiac rehabilitation services are designed to improve your quality of life when you have a heart attack or other heart conditions. Program goals include:
- Improved exercise ability
- Reduced cardiac symptoms
- Positive psychosocial well-being
Cardiac rehab participants are referred to the program by their physicians after recovering from a heart attack, valve repair or replacement, bypass surgery, cardiomyopathy, angioplasty, heart failure, heart transplant or stable angina. Speak with your physician about making a referral. The length of a patient’s rehabilitation participation is determined by the patient’s individual needs. Patients remain under the supervision of their physicians throughout the Atlanta-based cardiac rehab program to ensure the highest-quality of service and to reduce the risk of heart failure. Our cardiac rehab staff will be happy to verify your insurance for cardiac and pulmonary rehab coverage.
