Cardiac Health and Rehabilitation
Wheaton Franciscan Heart Care - All Saints Cardiac Health and Rehabilitation is a comprehensive program that works with you from hospitalization to voluntary participation in rehabilitation after a return to independent living. Anyone can participate in the program with a physician referral.
Inpatient Rehabilitation Program
While in the hospital, you are introduced to low-level exercise that steadily progresses until you return home. The Heart Health and Rehabilitation team blends this physical regimen with health information, counseling and support, and discharge planning.
Outpatient Rehabilitation Program
While exercising at your own pace on an outpatient basis, All Saints Heart Health and Rehabilitation team members monitor your progress and provide suggestions to improve recovery. This guidance and supervision is coupled with a variety of lifestyle-change classes.
Adult Fitness Program
For patients who want to continue in a supervised environment following the completion of their outpatient program, heart nurses and exercise physiologists plan individualized programs for patients to follow. This program offers a variety of hours to meet the needs of those who are working and retired.
With a physician’s referral, patients with no history of heart issues but with possible risk factors can utilize the Adult Fitness Program to assist with meeting their health maintenance goals. In addition, patients with vascular diseases, diabetes and other health problems can be referred to the department for a more systematic approach to exercise based on specific protocols and education.
