Cardiac Rehabilitation

After a heart attack, cardiovascular surgery, or heart-related treatment, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System can help you quickly resume an active lifestyle with rehabilitation services that meet the nation’s most rigorous standards for quality care.

Our physician-supervised, physician-prescribed Comprehensive Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is nationally certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation – the highest level of accreditation a cardiac rehabilitation program can receive. This recognition of excellence acknowledges our cardiac rehabilitation care team’s ongoing commitment to delivering the utmost cardiac rehabilitation care for every patient.

CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Cardiac Rehabilitation programs are individually designed for each patient and are supervised by a cardiologist and managed by cardiac rehabilitation professionals. Everything we do is done with one goal in mind: To help patients quickly recover from cardiovascular problems, such as heart attacks or coronary artery bypass graft surgery; and pulmonary problems, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and respiratory symptoms. Through exercise, education, counseling and support for both patients and families, our cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to guide patients back to health. Cardiac rehabilitation helps patients recognize and change unhealthy habits and establish new, healthier ones. Rehabilitation may last six weeks, six months, or even longer depending on the individual’s needs.
