Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Floyd Memorial’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR), and offers patients the expertise of registered nurses, a registered dietitian, a diabetes educator and an exercise physiologist in one convenient location within the hospital. This team of dedicated professionals encourages patients to take an active, participatory role in their ongoing recovery from heart conditions.
We strive to help patients manage their condition by reducing risk factors and modifying their lifestyle. We offer extensive exercise programs utilizing the latest and most advanced fitness equipment. Created and monitored by trained exercise physiologists, programs are individually tailored to treat a patient’s specific needs and abilities. In addition, patients receive individualized education on disease processes, stress management, exercise, risk factors and heart medications, as well as tailored dietary programs created by registered dietitians to assist in the rehabilitation process.
The facility offers:
- Programmable stationary and recumbent bikes
- Biodex upper body cycle ergometers
- NuStep machines
- Landice treadmills
- True elliptical treadmills
- Top-of-the-line strength training equipment
In addition to our in-hospital location, cardiac rehab services are also offered at the Floyd Memorial Medical Group-River Cities Cardiology office in Jeffersonville at 1713 East 10th Street.
Cardiac rehab is generally covered by insurance within one year of a qualifying cardiac event. However, for patients interested in preventative or maintenance care beyond their covered benefits, we offer a self-pay program that is similar to a fitness center with the advantage of monitoring by cardiac nurses. With a physician referral, participants can use the medically supervised facility to improve their health and wellness.
We want to help all our patients reestablish and maintain an active lifestyle. To contact the Cardiac Rehab Program at Floyd Memorial Hospital in New Albany, call 812-948-7501. To contact our Jeffersonville location at Floyd Memorial Medical Group-River Cities Cardiology, call 812-284-6000.
