Cardiac Rehabilitation

Chesapeake Regional Healthcare’s cardiac rehabilitation is nationally certified through the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. It is designed to return patients to a normal routine, answer concerns and questions they might have after having a cardiac event or procedure, and help improve their overall health by identifying and reducing the risk factors that lead to cardiovascular disease. When our patients complete the program, they are confident in caring for their cardiac health and reducing their risk for further cardiac disease.
