Cardiac Rehab: an Advantage Close to Home

MaryAnn’s story starts in March 2010 when she had a heart attack, was brought to Speare’s Emergency Department, and air lifted to Catholic Medical Center (CMC). After her hospitalization, she was referred to Speare’s Cardiac Rehab Program. Being a retired nurse who had an active lifestyle, MaryAnn appreciated the monitored exercise program and learned a few tips from the nutritional counseling.

Genetics got the best of MaryAnn when she had another heart attack in September 2011, followed by a two-way bypass. Having felt good about her first experience with Cardiac Rehab, she decided to go through the program again.

She says, “I live close by, but a lot of people live further out, so it is such an advantage for Speare to have this program and partnership with CMC.”

Cardiac Rehabilitation at Speare Memorial Hospital is celebrating its 10th anniversary and has graduated nearly 500 people from the program. The Cardiac Rehab program at Speare is medically prescribed and supervised, and nationally certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Working in tandem with your cardiologist, our exercise physiologists develop a specialized treatment plan for each patient.
