For patients recovering from a cardiac event or procedure, UHS offers a nationally certified cardiac rehabilitation program that begins upon admission to the hospital and continues well after discharge.
Patients spend 12–18 weeks participating in a comprehensive, medically supervised program of exercise, health education and emotional support. Individualized exercise prescriptions help patients build strength and stamina, as well as reduce risk factors for heart disease.
UHS Cardiac Rehabilitation is available at UHS Binghamton General Hospital and UHS Delaware Valley Hospital. Call 762‑2178 (Binghamton) or 865‑2155 (Walton) for more information.
