St. Luke's Heart Health and Rehabilitation Center

Our team will help optimize your health, improve your quality of life, and reduce your risk when you have had a heart attack; undergone coronary bypass surgery, valve replacement, or catheter-based interventions within the last 12 months; or have congestive heart failure or symptomatic lung disease such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, interstitial lung disease, or chronic bronchitis.

We’ll customize a physical activity and education plan to meet your needs, and a physician will monitor your condition and progress. You’ll also have access to an exercise physiologist, physical therapist, and dietitian to help support you along the way.

For a referral, please speak with your physician.
