Cardiovascular rehabilitation

submitted by Lower Bucks Hospital

After recovering from a heart attack or surgery, patients may still require continued care. Outpatient cardiac rehab helps make this possible with customized plans tailored to individual needs. 

At Lower Bucks Hospital, we offer a combination of monitored exercise, education, counseling, and support to help you improve your function and quality of life. 

How do I get started? Before leaving the hospital or on your first check-up with your cardiologist, ask for a prescription at our outpatient cardiac rehabilitation center. Call the facility to make an appointment. Current national recommendations suggest that you begin outpatient cardiac rehabilitation one to three weeks after discharge from the hospital. 

You can contact Lower Bucks Hospital’s outpatient cardiac rehabilitation center at 215-785-9133.
