Cardiac Rehabilitation and Education Program (MDH & OTMH)

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is an individualized exercise and educational program, designed to improve cardiovascular fitness and reduce risk factors for coronary artery disease.

This program:

  • is most beneficial to people who have had some type of heart-related event including:  angina, heart attack, congestive heart failure, heart surgery, or angioplasty.  
  • includes medical evaluation, graded exercise testing, individually prescribed exercise programs, supervised exercise classes, risk factor education, and counseling. 
  • is run by a multidisciplinary team including a medical director, administrative assistant, nurses, physiotherapists, dietitian, kinesiologists, social worker, trained exercise supervisors and volunteers.
  • is offered at both Oakville and Milton hospitals.  
  • provides education and activity guidelines for patients to utilize between hospital discharge and beginning the outpatient program.

Most patients begin the program within 6-12 weeks post hospitalization, with referrals being accepted up to 2 years after the event or surgery. An early discharge program  is offered at the Oakville Hospital for patients with recent cardiac events or surgeries. 

**To participate in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, a Physician Referral is required.**
