The Bates County Memorial Hospital Cardiac-Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is designed for individuals who have been discharged from a Phase I cardiac inpatient rehabilitation program. The outpatient program also offers phase II exercise with continuous heart monitoring, along with cardiac health education and coaching. Most Phase II patients participate in 36 cardiac rehab sessions. The Cardiac Rehab team works with patients on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
We also offer Phase IV – maintenance exercise with basic vital sign monitoring. Our health maintenance program is for our graduates of the Phase II program and also for those interested in a gym membership. A physician’s referral may be required. There is a monthly charge and this service is not covered by insurance.
Cardiac rehab is a safe and effective way for patients with heart disease to:
- Get stronger
- Feel better faster
- Return to former activities
- Reduce the risk of future heart problems
- Live a healthier and longer life
If you’ve recently had a cardiac event, ask your doctor about a referral to our program.
Patients with chronic pulmonary diseases such as COPD or restrictive lung disorders also benefit from the program, which combines education and exercise to meet the individual needs of each patient. The Pulmonary Rehab team works with patients on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Benefits of Pulmonary Rehab may include:
- Less shortness of breath
- Improved strength in daily activities
- Improved quality of life
- Better coping skills
