Our heart and vascular services and Kingwood Medical Center go beyond saving lives; they are also designed to get patients back to full, active lives quickly and safely. Plus, providing the education and support needed to prevent future cardiovascular events (such as a heart attack).
Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is designed to educate patients who have experienced a cardiovascular event and to help them recover faster. The goal of our program is to help patients return to a full and productive life, which have divided into two phases.
- Phase I: Inpatient consultation, evaluation and education
- Phase II: Outpatient cardiac rehabilitation with continuous telemetry monitoring for 12 weeks
Our rehabilitation experts combine education, counseling, exercise and lifestyle tips to help patients feel better and live healthier lives.
Aimed at helping heart patients on their road to recovery, we established our Mended Hearts program to help heal the hearts and minds of cardiac patients as they begin to understand the newness and fullness of what life after heart disease can offer. Caring for heart patients inside and out is a goal of the program as well as our hospital.
The program is a national nonprofit organization affiliated with the American Heart Association, whose volunteers speak from personal experience. Many were heart patients themselves or have family and friends impacted by a heart condition. It allows trained volunteers to spend one-on-one time with inpatients as they empathize with concerns, answer questions and encourage working towards recovery.
