Cardiac Rehab
Scotland Memorial Hospital's Cardiac Rehab program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. This outpatient program is designed for men and women who have had a heart attack, heart surgery, chest pain or risk factors for heart disease. The program serves those who have one or more of the following diagnoses:

Angioplasty (ptca)
Valvular Surgery
Myocardial infarction
Congestive heart failure
Atherectomy
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery
Stable angina pectoris
Pacemaker or AICD implant
Cardiac transplantation

Participants enter Cardiac Rehab soon after hospital discharge, with a range of five days post-surgery to nine months post-event. The average patient is four weeks post-event. The goal of the program is to progress the patient rapidly from a cardiac event to the point where they can return to work or pursue their favorite activities, while providing the patient with support, guidance, education and improved physical condition.
