Cardiac Rehabilitation

Conway Regional Cardiac Rehabilitation provides patients who have experienced a cardiac event a medically supervised environment for exercise and education to help them recover and improve their overall quality of life. 

The goal of our program is to help individuals increase their strength and endurance and adapt their lifestyle so they can enjoy many more active years. Admission into Phase I and II of Cardiac Rehab requires a physician's order and takes place at Conway Regional Cardiac Rehabilitation. 

Who Qualifies?

Patients who have or have had:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft
  • Heart attack
  • Angioplasty and/or stent placement
  • Heart valve repair or replacement
  • Heart or heart-lung transplant
  • Stable angina
  • Heart failure
  • Other approve heart-related conditions

The program has three phases: 

Phase I

Cardiac Rehabilitation begins in the hospital, after a procedure. Patients are educated on their heart's function, heart disease and the role of diet and exercise in their recovery. They also begin limited physical activity. 

Phase II

This phase will begin after discharge from the hospital, approximately two to six weeks after a cardiac event. This medically supervised rehabilitation offers an exercise regime with regular reporting to the physician. Patients attend exercise sessions three times per week. 

Classes and educational materials are also provided. 

Medicare will approve 36 visits of outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation that must be used in the first 12 to 18 weeks of Phase II. Medicare pays 80% of Phase II and Medipak pays the remaining 20% for the listed diagnosis and conditions when a patient has a physician's referral. Many private insurance companies will also pay for Cardiac Rehab. 

The clinic is located in the Physician Tower of Conway Regional, just off of the East Lobby (Entrance 1), in Suite 205.
