Cardiac Rehabilitation

Samaritan Healthcare’s new, state-of-the-art, cardiac rehabilitation clinic opened in June 2016 and is the only program available within a 70-mile radius of Moses Lake. The program provides care for patients needing Phase II or Phase III cardiac rehabilitation (rehab). Our skilled exercise physiologists provide quality care for those who need fitness evaluations and risk assessments to determine their individual cardiac rehab treatment plans.

Our outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program has been certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The AACVPR certification recognized Samaritan for our commitment to improving the quality of life by enhancing standards of care. The program is designed to help people with cardiovascular problems—such as heart attacks and coronary artery bypass graft surgery—recover faster and improve their quality of life. The program provides exercise, education, counseling, and support for patients and their families.

AACVPR-certified programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. The application process for Samaritan’s cardiac rehabilitation program required extensive documentation of the program’s practices.

EKG, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation will be closely monitored by our trained exercise physiologists with the help of “VersaCare Go,” the industry leading telemetry monitoring system.

Our exercise physiologists will develop a maintenance plan for continued cardiac fitness using Phase II diagnostics, as well as risk assessment, education, and exercise prescriptions.

Those who benefit from cardiac rehabilitation include those with a history of:

  •     Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)
  •     Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  •     Current stable angina pectoris

  •     Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or coronary stenting

For Stage II cardiac rehab, a physician/cardiologist referral within 12 months of a qualified cardiac event is required in order to begin cardiac rehab at Samaritan Healthcare. For Stage III a physician/cardiologist referral is not required, however graduation from a Stage II cardiac rehab is required for these patients.
