Brooksville, Florida (April 16, 2021) — Oak Hill Hospital announces that outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Services are now available.
With a doctor’s referral, cardiac rehabilitation is utilized to improve the cardiovascular health of individuals who have suffered a heart attack, heart failure, or any other debilitating heart condition. Cardiac rehabilitation usually involves exercise while being closely monitored, and education in order to rebuild and maintain heart strength.
Oak Hill Hospital’s cardiac rehabilitation specialists will work with each patient to develop a personalized program based on each patient’s needs and goals. The personalized program typically takes place three times a week for approximately 12 weeks.
Benefits of cardiac rehabilitation
Cardiac rehabilitation offers several benefits, including:
- Increased physical functioning and overall strength
- Increased knowledge about heart disease
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
- Reduced anxiety and depression
- Reduced potential for future heart problems through risk factor management
- Regained energy which makes daily activities easier
“As the only open heart surgery hospital in Hernando County, adding cardiac rehab services to Oak Hill Hospital was a natural step to continue growing our comprehensive heart program,” said David Slovut, M.D., Chief Medical Officer. “Our goal is to be the hospital of choice by providing the services our patients need, keeping them close to home and to their doctor, family, and friends, whose support is instrumental to each patient’s full recovery.”
