Cardiac Rehabilitation

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at St. Joseph Hospital was developed in 1977 and has treated almost 2,000 people since its inception. The program is designed to help restore patients to optimal health and reduce their risk factors for coronary artery disease, thereby helping them return to a productive and satisfying life.

The program helps identify:

Major Risk Factors

  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Lack of exercise

Related Risk Factors

  • Stress & tension
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Family history


Patients and their families are provided educational classes. These sessions help in understanding cardiac disease and how it can best be treated.

Exercise Classes

Our cardiac rehabilitation nurse schedules the exercise sessions. Each class meets three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) for six to 12 weeks. Each session is approximately one hour long.
