Cardiac Rehabilitation

​​​​​SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital - Janesville offers comprehensive exercise, education and behavior modification programs designed to improve the physical and emotional health of individuals in need of Cardiac Rehabilitation Services.

We offer outpatient (Phase II and III) programs to help patients who have recently had a cardiac event improve their physical and emotional health.

Check out our calendar of upcoming cardiac rehabilitation education opportunities!

Phase II: Outpatient Cardiac Rehab

With a referral from your primary care physician, cardiologist or surgeon, outpatient cardiac rehab typically begins one to three weeks after discharge. Our program includes monitored exercise sessions and weekly education classes.

Education classes cover topics including: lipid management, hypertension, nutrition basics, weight and stress management, diabetes, heart anatomy and disease, label reading, dining out, relaxation techniques, exercise guidelines and cardiac medications.

The full program is 36 sessions over a three-month period. It is covered by Medicare and most insurance companies. We have morning and afternoon classes that meet on Wednesdays.​ 

Phase III: Outpatient Maintenance Program

This exercise program is for Phase II graduates or individuals considered appropriate for Phase III after a physician evaluation. Our goal is to provide support and guidance as you move toward an independent exercise program. After 12 visits, a staff member will discuss your progress and monitor your heart rate, blood pressure and EKG.

This is a self-pay program that requires physician referral. Participants purchase a punch card for $50. The card is valid for 12 sessions and expires six months from the date of purchase. Participants may exercise up to five days per week. Staff will inform you if an entry assessment and telemetry monitored session is necessary before you begin. If this is required, the cost is $50. Some insurance companies may cover part of the Phase III costs. Contact your insurer for details.
