Phase One: In-Hospital Recovery
The period immediately following a cardiac event involving in-hospital recovery.
Phase Two: Cardio Conditioning
The conditioning phase is twelve weeks (36 sessions). In order to achieve the desired effect, attendance three times per week is advisable.
Phase Three: Cardio Health Maintenance
The third phase is a maintenance or a home program. During the maintenance program, at least three sessions a week are recommended. This phase can be completed in a community gym, at home or in the Phelps Wellness Program. For the home program, walking or using an ergometer bicycle three or four times a week is suggested.
There is a fee associated with each phase of the program. Most insurance companies and Medicare pay the charge for Phase Two cardiac rehabilitation. For more information, call (914) 366-3740 or (914) 366-3742.
