Cardiac Rehabilitation

No one in the region is more all-in for parents and babies than Hendricks Regional Health. Because we know: the first step in an unstoppable life is an unstoppable start.

Our commitment to safety is absolutely, unquestionably, all in. That’s why we have an A safety rating from Leapfrog. There’s no one more all-in for Hoosiers. That’s why we’ve cared for literally generations of west central Indiana newborns and moms for over six decades. There’s no one more on board with your personalized birth plan. That’s why we offer birthing classes, breastfeeding consultants and the allowance of doulas. And there’s simply no one more prepared. That’s why we have a Level II Special Care Nursery and pediatric hospitalists on call 24/7.

To learn about our special kind of all-in care, watch the following video featuring real Hendricks patients. Under the video, you’ll find even more helpful information and videos on our services and resources for expecting parents.

Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically supervised program designed to help improve your cardiovascular health. This step of the process is crucial for a speedy and successful recovery after a heart attack, heart failure, procedure or surgery.

Who Would Benefit from Cardiac Rehabilitation?

We treat patients with diagnoses such as:

  • heart attack
  • bypass surgery
  • stent/balloon of a coronary artery
  • stable angina needing medical management
  • peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

How Does Cardiac Rehabilitation Work?

The days and weeks following a cardiac event can be overwhelming. Our cardiac rehabilitation program at Hendricks Regional Health maps out the road to recovery through a medically supervised education and exercise program. These services are available in Danville, Brownsburg and at the Hendricks Regional Health YMCA in Avon and are tailored to the specific patient's treatment plan. Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET) to help people suffering from PAD pain is only offered in Danville and Brownsburg.

A vital tool in your emotional recovery after a cardiac event is the support and camaraderie shared by other patients. As patients exercise together through our Cardiac Rehab program, they share experiences and concerns, and help each other along the path of healing.

With cardiac rehabilitation, we aim to help our patients:

  • Minimize the effects of heart disease
  • Reduce the risk of future health problems
  • Bring your heart back to good health

Our specialized program, which also benefits those with congestive heart failure, includes nutritional guidance, medication management, instructions and guidelines for activity, and education about the disease process.
