Cardiac Rehabilitation

Inpatient as Well as Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation

Implemented in 1978, UMC provides a complete Cardiac Rehabilitation program for inpatient as well as outpatient care. Our program is unique because of the early intervention with the patient and family by using a care map, standing orders from your physician and follow-up care in our outpatient program for a period of three (3) months after discharge.Our patients are monitored using state-of-the-art equipment that will detect any cardiac rhythm abnormality. Our staff, trained in basic and advanced cardiac life support resuscitation, consists of registered nurses and cardiovascular technicians. The outpatient program is located within UMC, which allows for a backup support in cases of emergencies.
