Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation is an important part of treatment for patients with different types of heart disease. Even after successful treatment or surgery, patients may wonder whether their hearts can ever withstand the exertion of activities of daily living and exercise. Our program combines carefully monitored exercise, education, and support to help heart patients make strong recoveries and return to normal, productive lives. We offer cardiac rehabilitation services at two locations – one at Miami Valley Hospital, the main hospital campus in Dayton, and the other at Miami Valley Hospital North in Englewood, Ohio.

Steps to Success

Miami Valley Hospital offers cardiac rehabilitation in three phases:

Phase I 

Phase I services are offered to hospitalized cardiac patients following a cardiac event, treatment, or surgery. At Miami Valley Hospital, we introduce cardiac rehabilitation services and assist the patient with “slow and steady” physical progress – their first steps toward recovery.  

Phase II

Phase II is a six to 12-week outpatient recovery program offered at Miami Valley Hospital and Miami Valley Hospital North. It is designed to help patients regain the confidence and stamina needed to return to normal activities. Our experienced cardiac rehabilitation teams create an individualized plan of care for each patient. Care plans incorporate:

  • Monitored Exercise - Medically-supervised conditioning on treadmills, exercise bicycles, free weights, and other exercise equipment 
  • Nutritional Counseling - Instruction on heart-healthy eating
  • Behavior Modification Education - Counseling on personal stress management, medication management, smoking cessation, weight management, and other lifestyle modifications
  • Group Support - Encouragement and motivation for patients and their family members

To be admitted to phase II program, a patient needs a referral from his/her primary care physician or cardiologist. Medicare and other insurance providers frequently cover 50 to 100 percent of the phase II program costs. Prior to starting you should verify coverage with your insurance. Staff members can help if there are questions or concerns.

Phase III

For the recovering heart patient, and for any person who is committed to a healthy lifestyle, cardiovascular fitness becomes a lifelong pursuit. For this reason, graduates of phase II cardiac rehabilitation may choose to enroll in the third phase of cardiac rehabilitation.

During phase III, patients continue their recovery progress in a secure, familiar environment, while making the transition from monitored exercise to unmonitored, independent exercise. They also benefit from ongoing group interaction and support. Patients many continue in phase III for as long as they wish to participate. Participations pay program fees out-of-pocket on a semi-annual or annual basis.

Taking the First Step

Whether you are a patient, the family member of someone with a heart problem, or simply a person who is concerned about cardiopulmonary fitness, our staff of skilled cardiac care professionals are happy to answer questions about heart health or our comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation services.
