At Fannin Regional Hospital, we’re all heart. Cardiac rehabilitation helps people living with heart disease or who are recovering from a cardiac event like a heart attack or bypass surgery build endurance and strength. But it’s not all about the body’s strongest muscle. The program at Fannin Regional Hospital looks at the whole person, creating an individual plan that combines supervised exercise, education and lifestyle changes specific to each patient based on their age and abilities.
Staffed by registered nurses, dietitians, respiratory therapists and exercise physiologists, the team at Fannin Regional Hospital customizes an exercise program complete with nutrition guidelines, stress management techniques and smoking cessation counseling. The overall goal is to help modify the risk factors related to heart disease and to develop a personalized plan to help each patient achieve his or her maximum potential for heart health.
