At the South Denver Cardiology Associates (SDCA), we believe a comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program is critical to the recovery of our guests who have recently undergone changes in the status of their cardiovascular system. This includes changes caused by chest pain, heart attack, coronary intervention or heart surgery. Our physicians recommend an approach that treats the whole person instead of focusing only on the cardiac issue. Your customized Rehabilitation plans will be designed to return you to peak physical conditioning, but also promotes a healthy lifestyle with encouragement and support from our entire team.
Exercise is central to our approach: it is both a heart-saver and a lifesaver. Exercise physiologists, technicians and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified registered nurses trained in cardiac care and a cardiologist are all on the premises for the duration of each patient’s exercise session.

Education also plays an important role in the cardiac rehabilitation experience. Individual and formal classes teach patients to reduce stress, to plan and prepare nutritious and tasty meals and to change old habits. In short, they teach those skills necessary to promote a heart-healthy lifestyle.
The SDHC Cardiac Rehabilitation experience is more than just state of the art programs and facilities. It is more than exercise and education. It is the support and expertise that comes from dedicated people that make up our team. It is new life and new hope.
