The Bellevue Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Program has three phases.
Phase I is an educational component for inpatients with heart-related conditions. Education includes videos and one-on-one sessions with skilled cardiac nurses.
Phase II is geared for outpatients who have had a heart attack, bypass surgery, angioplasty, or other heart-related conditions. The emphasis is on education and conditioning. Phase I and Phase II are typically covered under insurance.
Phase III is where patients continue their newly formed healthy lifestyles, including exercise and diet. Phase III may be continued at home for free, or participants may choose to continue their diet and exercise plan through The Bellevue Hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation Department for a low, out-of-pocket fee.
