Our cardiac and respiratory professionals provide careful observation of patients during exercise and help patients and their families understand heart disease to control future risks and live a longer, happier life.

Patients eligible to participate in our cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation programs include individuals who have suffered a heart attack, angina, congestive heart failure, individuals who have had coronary artery bypass graft surgery, angioplasty, valve replacement, or valve repair, or those individuals who suffer from lung conditions such as emphysema, asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, occupational/ environmental lung disease, sarcoidosis, and who are pre/post lung surgery.

Our programs include education, health screenings, nutrition counseling, and group and individual exercise programs.

Phased Approach to Cardiac Care

Our team takes a phased approach to cardiac rehabilitation, ensuring we see you through to a safe recovery, a return to the life you planned and the prevention of future complications.

Phase One

Phase I, or the inpatient program, begins while the patient is recovering in the hospital. Our cardiologists and primary care providers work together to help you with conditioning and range of motion exercises and progressive ambulation. We'll also teach you more about heart disease, its risk factors and other vital information needed to help you recover.

Phase Two

Phase II begins once the patient is discharged from the hospital. Phase II classes are held in the Froedtert Kenosha Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center. The length of Phase II varies depending on the participant’s needs and medical condition, but generally lasts from six to eight weeks. Classes meet three times per week and last one and a half hours. They include monitored exercise sessions, risk factor screening, nutrition counseling, patient education and individualized home exercise programs. Even when you're no longer here in the clinic, we're here for you, and will monitor your progress and answer your questions to help you make healthy choices with confidence.

Phase Three

Although most participants complete Phase II Cardiac Rehabilitation prior to beginning Phase III, it is not a requirement. Phase III is also held in the Froedtert Kenosha Hospital's Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center. Classes meet two to three times per week and last one and a half hours. They include individualized exercise prescription and progression in a supervised, but less intensely monitored environment, reinforcement of risk factor modification, patient education and home exercise programs. Interested individuals may participate in Phase III for two to six weeks.

Prevention Program

The Prevention Program is designed for medically stable individuals who have a history of heart disease or risk factors for heart disease. The program promotes independent exercise with a focus on preventing heart disease or the progression of heart disease through heart healthy lifestyle changes. Annual membership includes orientation to the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center, an updated exercise prescription, health risk appraisal, body fat test and a complete cholesterol panel. Members may exercise independently in the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center or participate in a supervised exercise class. A physician release is required for all participants.
