Healthy Hearts Program

Following a cardiac operation or procedure, you may wonder if you will ever be able to regain an active lifestyle. The Healthy Hearts Cardiac rehabilitation program is designed to strengthen your heart, increase your vitality and help you make lifestyle changes to reduce the chance of another cardiac event. Individualized rehabilitation begins while you are still in the hospital and continues in our outpatient location at 1305 Post Road in Fairfield.

Cardiac rehabilitation is covered by most medical insurance plans, if your physician feels you would benefit from the program. Please call 203-256-5896 for more information.
