The follow-up to cardiovascular and heart treatment is as important as the treatment itself in returning patients to an active lifestyle. PSJMC cardiac rehabilitation provides customized programs based on each patient's personal characteristics and condition.
Our rehabilitation gym offers medically supervised use of state-of-the-art exercise equipment including multi-station weight machines, stationery and recumbent bicycles, rowing machines, recumbent steppers, treadmills, stair steppers, arm and leg ergometers and elliptical trainers.
Education is also an important component of the rehabilitation process.
PSJMC's cardiac rehabilitation staff provides patients with the latest information on ways to modify controllable heart disease risk factors like diet, stress and blood pressure, as well as the encouragement needed to successfully complete the program.
Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center is proud to host the Joliet chapter of the Mended Hearts, Inc., a national volunteer organization whose primary purpose is offering encouragement to tell those who are contemplating or have undergone open heart surgery.
