Whether you're recovering from an episode of angina or open-heart surgery, or you're interested in prevention programs, the Center for Cardiac Fitness can help you keep your heart healthy. Our state-of-the-art facility is staffed with experienced medical professionals from The Miriam Hospital who will work with you to improve your condition.
The center is one of only a few in Rhode Island to be accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
The center is accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Our staff includes:
- exercise physiologists
- behavioral health psychologists and
- registered nurses
Our program activities are planned and conducted according to the severity of each patient's cardiac condition and functional ability--and personalized by baseline diagnostic testing and regular medical monitoring of his or her progress. Our goal is to provide the correct balance of exercise, nutrition, stress management, education, and individual support services that will help patients incorporate heart healthy habits into their everyday lives.
Depending upon the type of insurance you have, your deductible, and your diagnosis, most cardiac rehabilitation program costs are covered; most health plans do require a modest co-pay. Health insurance plans, however, do not cover cardiac maintenance and prevention program costs, which are structured as monthly membership dues based on how many days you use the facility. We offer affordable payment plans for those who qualify, so please check with us if you're concerned about costs.
