Advanced Cardiovascular Care

Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program

St. Luke’s Health’s highly trained, multidisciplinary cardiac rehabilitation team helps individuals who have recently been affected by heart disease recover faster and return to full, productive lives. With the first program in Southeast Texas accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR), we are one of the nation’s select programs individualized to each patient.

If you’ve had a heart attack, heart surgery, or another heart condition, ask your doctor if you qualify for cardiac rehabilitation.

Recovery & Support

We take a progressive and multidisciplinary approach to cardiac rehabilitation, focusing on four main areas:

  • Exercise: During the initial period, our qualified nurses, exercise physiologists, and medical staff create a custom exercise regimen. We continuously monitor patients during exercise with advanced continuous EKG.
  • Nutrition: Individuals receive counseling on effective methods of achieving ideal body weight and controlling cholesterol, blood sugar, and hypertension through diet.
  • Counseling Services: Our team supports cardiac patients and families dealing with pain, fear, and depression during rehabilitation.
  • Education: We offer heart-health classes and discussions on relevant topics, including risk factors for heart disease, the benefits of exercise, weight management, nutrition, and stress management.
