Providence St. Luke's Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation is a comprehensive, medically monitored exercise and education program, emphasizing disease prevention and management, education, behavior modification and support.

We offer our patients peace of mind in knowing that their heart is in capable, caring hands with our multidisciplinary team. St. Luke's is proud to be one of the nation’s programs certified by American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).

Helping patients thrive

With a doctor referral, St. Luke's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is implemented for patients with:

  • Heart attack within the last 12 months
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery 
  • Stable angina
  • Heart valve repair or replacement
  • Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty/stent
  • Heart or lung transplant
  • Heart failure
  • Symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Most health insurers now provide coverage for cardiac rehabilitation, but some do not. Patients should check their insurance coverage before beginning cardiac rehab.

Those who have limited finances or lack insurance may apply for Providence financial assistance  before their first appointment.
