7/28/22 - Arkansas Methodist Medical Center’s (AMMC) Cardiac Rehab program is open and currently accepting patients. Cardiac Rehab is a 12-week program that incorporates education and exercise to help improve the patient’s quality of life after a cardiac event such as heart attack, heart surgery, or heart disease.
The goal of cardiac rehab is to help the patient regain strength, become more independent, and prevent their condition from worsening.
An initial evaluation is performed and an individualized treatment plan is formed. After the initial evaluation, patients typically attend weekly sessions that include medically supervised exercise and education. By the end of the program the patient will be more knowledgeable about their condition with the skills to live a healthier lifestyle.
