We offer comprehensive Outpatient Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Programs that begin shortly after discharge from the hospital. The Programs offer closely supervised and monitored exercise, as well as education and counseling to make healthy lifestyle changes.
Program goals are to improve functional (exercise) capacity, decrease risk for future cardiac events and enhance patient support
Patients attend classes two to three times per week. A physician referral is required to participate in the program.
In January 2020, we opened our newest outpatient care center in Kildeer. The NCH Kildeer care center is home to our Intensive Cardiac Rehab Program. The first of its kind in Chicagoland, NCH partners with the Pritikin Longevity Program to offer this program. Patients receive support and assistance to make long-term lifestyle, exercise and diet modifications after experiencing a cardiac event.
Comprehensive workshops and videos address exercise, nutrition and healthy mindset, and cooking school highlights healthy and nutritious recipes.
