Cardiac Rehabilitation Program

Medicare and many insurance companies cover most of the cost of cardiac rehabilitation, but a physician's referral is required. For more information, to tour our facility, or for a staff member to contact your physician about a referral, please call 706-721-9055.

Taking an active role in a safe, medically supervised exercise program such as cardiac rehabilitation can help patients with heart disease:

  • Speed recovery after heart attack
  • Improve their overall health
  • Reduce the risk of future heart problems
