Cardiac Rehab - Good Samaritan Medical Center

The cardiac fitness program, a combined effort of Good Samaritan Medical Center and the Striar Old Colony YMCA, is a comprehensive, community-based cardiac fitness program for people with heart disease.

The program emphasizes both exercise and education and its purpose is to return cardiac patients to active, productive lives. You will need a physician referral to participate in the program. Most insurance programs cover the cost of the cardiac fitness program. The number of visits and co-payments may vary. We encourage you to call your insurance provider for details.

The medical director of the cardiac fitness program is a board-certified cardiologist on staff at Good Samaritan Medical Center. His expertise guides the multidisciplinary staff of registered nurses and exercise physiologists. All program staff members are certified in advanced life support techniques and emergency equipment is on hand at all times.

The exercise component of the outpatient cardiac fitness program begins as early as four weeks after your cardiac event. This portion of the program lasts eight to 12 weeks and offers the opportunity to pursue a program individually tailored to your specific physical needs. The program includes walking, low-level weights, stretching, biking and rowing.

For more information about the cardiac fitness program, call Darlene Gareri at 508-427-3173.
