Berkshire Medical Center’s award-winning cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are recognized as a “Best Practice” site by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation and are a key element in our program of comprehensive care.
These programs are designed to help patients with heart disease reduce their risk of future events, as well as regain their strength, health and confidence. Our team includes cardiologists, registered nurses who are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, exercise specialists, and dieticians.
Cardiac rehabilitation is an important next step in recovery for individuals who have suffered a recent heart attack, heart surgery, angioplasty or angina. Cardiac rehabilitation programs have been shown to reduce deaths by up to 25% during the few years following a heart attack or procedure.
