In Mid-Missouri, SSM Health offers Cardiac Rehabilitation services at both our Jefferson City and Mexico hospital locations. Our Cardiac Rehabilitation programs provide comprehensive care to individuals who have recently experienced a cardiac event. A program of exercise, education and counseling is designed by a team of health care professionals to meet the specific needs and goals for promoting cardiovascular health for each patient. An initial evaluation will help us set up a program which meets and adapts to each patient’s individual needs. Throughout the exercise sessions, your heart rate and rhythm are monitored by EKG. Blood pressure, pulse rate and oxygen are also monitored by the cardiac rehab staff.
Your physician may refer you to the program if your history includes:
- Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
- Angina (chest discomfort)
- Heart bypass, valve surgery or transplantation
- Stent placement
