Pomerene Hospital is pleased to announce that it is now offering Cardiac Rehabilitation Services close to home at Pomerene Kinetics, Fitness for Life Medical Fitness Center located at 1237 Glen Drive in Millersburg. The program, which launched January 7th, is held every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 10:00 am until 12:30 pm.
Cardiac Rehab is aimed at helping patients recover quicker following a heart attack or heart procedure, feel better, reduce stress, reduce the risk of future heart problems, and develop a healthier lifestyle. Cardiac Rehab improves quality of life both physically and emotionally.
Pomerene’s Cardiac Rehab Program is uniquely designed and customized for each participant and includes monitored aerobic exercise, resistance training and education sessions totaling approximately 90 minutes per session. The sessions are designed to improve the health, well-being and knowledge of the participant as well as reduce heart-related risk factors and encourage beneficial behavioral changes. Progression through the program is carefully monitored by trained personnel and supervised by a physician for safety and overall improvement.
In most cases, patients enrolled in the Cardiac Rehab Program are referred by the patient’s physician or cardiologist following a heart procedure. Physicians receive updates and a report once the patient completed the program. The new program allows local participants the convenience of being close to home while receiving cardiac rehabilitation.
Cardiac Rehab is a perfect fit for the health and wellness programs at Pomerene Kinetics that focus on prevention and treatment of lifestyle related disease, illness, and injury, through participation in medically supervised physical activity, nutrition and health education.
“Health and wellness is a life-long endeavor. Following graduation from ourCardiac rehabilitation program, participants will have the opportunity to participate in the Cardiac Rehab maintenance program and continue improving their journey to well-being,” stated John Vaccariello, MD, Medical Director at Kinetics. “Participants can also sign up for a Kinetics Fitness for Life membership where they will continue to receive support from a qualified staff. We want people to know that we will continue to support and assist them in achieving their goals even after completion of the program.”

Cardiac Rehabilitation classes are scheduled twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All exercise sessions are supervised by a physician. For more information, please call 330-432-0468.
