Wellness Center and Cardiac Rehabilitation
Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento
For more than 35 years we have been helping people recover from cardiac events such as myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass, valve repair or replacement surgery, angioplasty, stent placement, angina, heart failure and heart transplants. We combine “sharing and caring” into our care philosophy, with the expertise of a professional health care team consisting of a physician, registered nurses and a registered clinical exercise physiologist. Other available specialists include a registered dietitian and social workers.
While in the hospital one of our registered nurses will visit you and your family to provide educational materials and answer questions about your diagnosis, procedure and recovery.
Outpatient Monitored Exercise
This program operates under the direction of a physician and is staffed by registered nurses and exercise specialists. Your ECG and blood pressure will be monitored while you enjoy a personalized exercise and education program designed to assist you with lifestyle changes and disease management. There are a variety of class offerings throughout the week with individual program lengths varying from approximately one to three months. This program is covered by most insurance companies.
Maintenance & Prevention
Is a minimally supervised, non-monitored exercise program for individuals in stable health who wish to supplement their home exercise programs. This program is offered to those who have graduated from a Phase II monitored cardiac rehabilitation program as well as to those with one or more cardiac risk factors who have not yet experienced a cardiac event. Please check with our front desk for available class times. This is a self-pay class, not covered by insurance.
Our new center was designed with Your Experience in mind. With a little over 3,000 square feet we have a large exercise room, private showers, private consultation rooms and lockers for your convenience.
