The staff of the Cardiac Health Center brings an enthusiasm to their work that is quickly apparent upon entering the facility. Each patient receives individual attention and encouragement, and is guided through a program of rehabilitation and lifestyle change specifically tailored to his/her needs.

Patients are energized by the motivation of the staff, all of whom understand that rehabilitation, physical fitness and adherence to a heart-conscious diet are as important to positive outcomes as are timely interventional and surgical cardiac care.
