Cardiac Rehabilitation Services
Beebe Medical Center offers an excellent program of expert cardiac rehabilitation services at the hospital's main campus.
The Beebe Cardiac Rehab Department has recently been enlarged to handle double the number of patients, and has been outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. Additional trained employees have been added to the cardiac rehab staff.
Cardiac rehab professionals design procedures and benchmarks that are customized to the needs of each heart patient. They then monitor daily progress to assure that patients are achieving their goals.
Your Cardiac Rehab Program
Your doctor may recommend that you participate in cardiac rehabilitation to help strengthen your muscles and restore your health after a heart attack or when certain other heart conditions have been diagnosed.
The Beebe program involves a customized plan of exercise and education. Your cardiac rehab plan is carefully tailored by trained Beebe experts to match your age, health condition, and specific needs. It is designed to:
- Limit the physiological and psychological effects of cardiac illness
- Reduce the risk of sudden death or relapse
- Control cardiac symptoms
- Stabilize and/or improve the patient's condition
- Enhance the patient's quality of life
