Dealing with a cardiac event or surgery can be a challenge, both physically and emotionally, for patients and their families. Thompson Health offers a range of cardiac rehabilitation programs designed to help patients regain their physical health, self-confidence and sense of well-being. Our programs help patients and their families learn how to manage diet, physical activity and stress levels for optimum health and happiness. Thompson Health’s cardiac rehabilitation program is designed to help patients return to normal activities as soon as possible after a cardiac event or surgery. Our trained cardiac rehabilitation staff offers a medically-planned program of exercise, education and counseling to help reduce the risk of a future cardiac event, and help patients feel in control, confident and ready to resume their activities.

How Our Program Works
Thompson Health offers a phased approach to cardiac rehabilitation. We work with patients at each step of their journey back to optimum health – starting with Phase I, immediately after surgery or a cardiac event.
Phase I: In the Beginning
Phase II: A Program Tailored Just for You
Program Schedule and Cost:
Thompson Health will determine your individual exercise coverage before starting the program. Scholarships are available.
Phase III: Maintaining Your Conditioned State
Phase III can be started after completing Phase II. The program is open to spouses or anyone seeking a medically-supervised exercise program. Physician approval is needed.
The goal of Phase III is to help you achieve a self-monitored, lifelong program of fitness. Phase III health and wellness education sessions are provided, as well as access to the Phase II education sessions. You can participate as many times a week as you wish.
Phase III is a self-pay program available at minimal cost.
