Swedish Covenant Hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program incorporates medically supervised exercise, lifestyle adjustment and group support into a comprehensive program at the Galter LifeCenter, Chicago's premier medically based fitness center. Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Cardiac rehabilitation is designed to return you to optimal physical and psychological well-being after a heart attack, angioplasty or open-heart surgery. After these cardiac events, many people are reluctant to resume their normal activities. Our cardiac rehabilitation program works to help you recover faster, regain confidence and prevent future problems.
The cardiac rehabilitation staff at Swedish Covenant Hospital includes specially trained nurses, exercise physiologists and physicians, as well as a dietician and health psychologist. The team will guide you through a comprehensive, individualized plan that incorporates monitored exercise, education, lifestyle counseling and group support.
