Cardiac Rehabilitation

at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital

Cardiac Rehabilitation Program

Brigham and Women’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is a medical program designed to assist you in making heart healthy lifestyle choices to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

If you have a heart condition, underwent a heart procedure or had a heart attack, ask your doctor about joining cardiac rehabilitation.

Under the direction of board certified Brigham and Women’s cardiologists, the staff includes cardiac nurses, physical therapists/exercise physiologists and registered dietitians.

Brigham Health offers you two convenient locations:

  • Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain
  • Brigham and Women’s/Mass General Health Care Center in Foxborough

Both of these programs are certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). This certification means that these programs meet or exceed national care standards.

These 11 week programs features once or twice weekly sessions. They are held on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays at a variety of different times to suit your schedule (view schedule).

The program includes weekly monitored exercise sessions tailored to your individual needs, nutrition counseling, health education and a comprehensive stress management program that focuses on learning positive coping skills and relaxation techniques.
