Cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation aims to help you recover from a cardiovascular event — such as a heart attack or heart failure — or other debilitating heart condition. This recovery process usually involves physical therapy, exercise and education to rebuild and maintain your heart strength.

Heart rehabilitation in Nashville, Tennessee

If you've undergone a heart procedure or event, we are here to help you heal.

At TriStar Skyline Medical Center, we understand that a cardiac event is a disruptive experience, so our licensed cardiac registered nurses (RNs) will help develop a personalized rehabilitation plan for you to return to what you enjoy most in life. Your program will incorporate exercise while your heart is monitored, and it will help you identify and manage risk factors to reduce the risk of continued heart issues.

Need a physician referral?

TriStar MedLine can help. We are available by phone Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 7:00pm CST.
