A major health event such as a heart attack demands care beyond the life-saving treatment used to restore heart function. To regain their strength and prevent a future heart episode, patients typically undergo cardiac rehabilitation. Northside Hospital offers two distinct forms of cardiac rehabilitation for our St. Petersburg patients.
In the days ensuing the medical emergency that brought them to our hospital, Northside Hospital patients receive inpatient rehabilitation. This care brings together several cardiac experts who work together to help patients become strong enough to return home. They also teach patients how to manage their health and medication to avoid a subsequent heart event. Outpatient rehabilitation begins after a patient’s hospital release. Multiple times each week, patients visit our hospital to continually work on their physical fitness and overall heart wellness.
Should you or a loved one experience a life-threatening heart event, Northside Hospital is here to support you through each step of the survival and recovery process.
