Cardiac Rehabilitation

Inpatient Therapy and Rehabilitation 

Assisting our patients in their recovery process is our top priority. After a procedure or treatment at Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center, you may need inpatient rehabilitation. If required, your doctor will send an order and a clinical liaison from Lovelace UNM Rehabilitation Hospital will come to your room for a consultation. Lovelace UNM Rehabilitaiton offers a complete therapy program including physical therapy, occupational therapy, dietary consults and 24/7 physician oversight.   

Outpatient Therapy and Rehabilitation 

As part of our comprehensive cardiac care, Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center has teamed up with the New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation to provide outpatient therapy and rehabilitation to our cardiology patients. New Heart Center for Wellness, Fitness and Cardiac Rehabilitation helps our patients get back on the path to long-term recovery. 

New Heart offers access to several cardiac rehabilitation programs, each based on specific heart problems and customized to each individual. Programs include customized exercise instruction, diet management, stress management, medication management, smoking cessation and focus on risk reduction. New Heart is staffed by exercise physiologists who will help individuals develop lifetime habits for good health. There is also access to a dietician for those who are interested in developing good eating habits. 

If your physician orders rehabilitation care after your treatment we will work with you to schedule a consultation and find a close and convenient rehabilitation option for your care.
