Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation is designed to improve cardiovascular status through exercise training and modifying risk factors for heart disease. If you have had a recent cardiac event, your physician may refer you to the outpatient cardiac rehab program at Perham Health.

An individualized exercise program is developed to assist you to meet your specific activity goals and desired outcomes.  Cardiac rehabilitation is staffed by a registered nurse with education in cardiovascular disease  or an  exercise physiologist.

The one-hour session is available three times a week; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and includes warm-up, exercise, and education. During your initial visit, the nurse will work with you to create a schedule that works best for you to meet your goals.
