SMH's Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehab programs are nationally certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation and address the physiological, psychosocial, and vocational limitations of patients with chronic Cardiovascular disease and chronic lung conditions.

The goal of therapy is to help patients resume active, productive lives within their limitations and to focus on prevention of the progression or reversal of the patient's condition.

Therapy includes physical therapy, education, risk factor modification and vocational support. Patients are seen during hospitalization for early mobilization and preparation to go home and, according to doctors' orders, continue therapy on an outpatient basis.
