Support Services for Cardiovascular Patients
Cardiac Rehabilitation is located at Candler Hospital. Exercise, education and counseling helps patients with heart disease recover faster. Together with medical and surgical treatments, rehabilitation can help you feel better and live a healthier life.
A physician's referral is necessary for admission. The medical director reviews the plan of care, including goals and exercise prescriptions, but the patient's referring physician remains the primary physician during rehabilitation and is kept informed. For more information, please contact us at (912) 819-7340.
The Heart Hospital has periodic screenings open to the public around the region. Please call CareCall at (800) 622-6877 to find out when the next one is scheduled.
