CardioPulmonary Program

The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Wood Haven Health Care is a medically supervised, individually tailored program consisting of exercise and education to help patients feel better, increase endurance and improve their overall quality of life. A multidisciplinary health care team helps treat patients with cardiac and/or pulmonary impairment who have limited physical condition and ability to function well in their lives.

Returning to your regular routine after a heart attack or surgery can be frustrating. You might feel frightened or uncertain about what you can safely do after such a major cardiac event.

That’s where Wood Haven Health Care can help.

We offer a physically and emotionally supportive place where you can recover at your own pace under the supervision of an experienced and compassionate team of specialists which includes a physician, therapists, nurses, and a dietician.

By learning ways to prevent cardiovascular disease and simultaneously strengthening the body and heart, a patient can recover more quickly from a cardiac event and also help prevent future events.

Our goal is to help you back on the path to wellness and a better quality of life.
