Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation is an important part of recovery following heart surgery and cardiovascular procedures. If you or someone you know is preparing for an elective procedure to care for a heart condition or suffered a cardiovascular problem that needed treatment, a three-phase rehabilitation program will help improve the success of the treatment and bring better overall health.

AACVPR Certified Program SealThe cardiac rehabilitation department at Lowell General Hospital has been certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) for meeting essential standards for quality patient care in cardiac rehabilitation. This is the only peer-reviewed accreditation in the nation designed to review individual facilities for adherence to standards and guidelines for cardiac rehabilitation centers. 

At Lowell General Hospital, you'll find a comprehensive, two-phase Cardiac Rehabilitation Program consisting of supervised exercise, personal risk factor modification, smoking cessation, blood pressure and stress reduction, and diet and lifestyle modification programs.
