Cardiac rehabilitation helps you get your heart back in shape after a significant heart event or heart surgery, or if you live with stable angina, peripheral artery disease, or congestive heart failure.
Nationally certified cardiac rehab
Across the University of Colorado Health system, our cardiac rehabilitation programs include exercise to strengthen your heart muscle, education to help you maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle, and support for making behavioral changes to stop smoking or improve your diet.
When you choose UCHealth for cardiac rehab, you have access to comprehensive programs certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR), nationally recognized leaders in the rehabilitation field.
