A cardiac event is life-changing. We can help you take care of your heart through comprehensive aftercare and support through the Nicholas Quadrel Healthy Heart Center for Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation. With nearly 30 years of experience, our cardiac rehab program helps reduce the risk of a new cardiac event and complications through a medically supervised program of exercise, nutritional counseling, and support.
You may benefit from cardiac rehab if your medical history includes heart attack, stable angina, certain congenital heart diseases, coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasty and stents, heart valve replacement, heart transplant, heart failure, peripheral artery disease and cardiomyopathy. Medicare now covers cardiac rehab for congestive heart failure.
In addition to our cardiac rehab program, we provide cardiac support groups monthly at the Quadrel Heart Center. We also offer cardiology educational programs at our RWJ Rahway Fitness & Wellness Center that are free and open to the community. We also offer diabetes self-management and diabetes support through our American Diabetes Association certified Diabetes Self -Management Program.
A recent comment from one of our patients, sums up the cardiac rehab experience: "You have kept me challenged, focused and on the road to a healthy future, always moving forward."
