Inpatient and Outpatient Care
At Hunt Regional Healthcare, we offer both inpatient and outpatient care to ensure your cardiac rehabilitation needs are met. Following your cardiac event, our physical therapy team will assist you with the early recovery process in an inpatient setting.
Upon referral from your cardiologist to our cardiac rehabilitation center, our team will begin your outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program.
We perform an individual clinical
evaluation in order to best design a program to fit your particular needs. Our outpatient program includes up to 12 weeks of physician-supervised exercise sessions which we supplement with information that will help you adapt to a new, healthier lifestyle in order to make lasting changes in your cardiac health.
Please note that both are reimbursable health services and the hospital will file with your insurance company.
Following the 12-week outpatient treatment, Hunt Regional Medical Center offers a low-cost maintenance program to make sure you stay on the right path in your cardiac rehabilitation. This self-directed program is supervised by a registered nurse and includes a monthly EKG rhythm analysis and blood pressure check as well as a quarterly body fat analysis.
Respiratory Therapy Rehabilitation
Respiratory therapy can help those with conditions affecting both the heart and lungs, such as asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other cardiopulmonary disorders. This specific type of rehab is designed to alleviate respiratory symptoms, optimize daily functions and activities, and improve any disability from chronic respiratory disease.
