Cardiac Rehabilitation

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at IU Health Tipton Hospital is designed to improve the physical, mental and emotional health of people who have a cardiac event, such as open-heart surgery, heart attack, angioplasty, coronary stents and cardiovascular disease.

The three phases of cardiac rehabilitation are:

  • Phase I (inpatient). Emphasizes education and early ambulation.
  • Phase II (outpatient). A telemetry monitored program that begins after you are dismissed from the hospital and focuses on education and gradually increased exercise.
  • Phase III (outpatient). A maintenance program offered at the hospital fitness center.

Inpatient (Phase I) and outpatient (Phase II) cardiac rehabilitation is covered by most insurance plans and requires a physician’s referral. Phase III costs $27 per month.

The cardiac rehabilitation department is open Monday through Friday 8 am – 4 pm. For more information, contact our cardiac rehab nurse at 765.675.8580.
