Our approach

The Upbeat Program was the first of its kind in the region, offering wellness programs in exercise, nutrition and stress reduction for cardiac and pulmonary patients.

The professionally-trained staff includes exercise physiologists, a physician advisor, nurses, dietitians, social workers, cardiopulmonary specialists and a complement of CPR-trained volunteers, many of whom successfully completed the Upbeat cardiac rehabilitation program.

Our program

Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac rehab is a comprehensive exercise and education program, designed to restore patients to their optimal physical, emotional, vocational and medical status.

The exercise physiologists at Upbeat evaluate each individual and design an exercise program according to the patient’s abilities. Throughout the program, the staff helps patients learn to take control of their risk factors and return to productive lives.

  • Phase II-Cardiac Rehab
    Phase II is an outpatient exercise program that begins shortly after patients are discharged from the hospital and requires a referral from a physician. It is a monitored program that may last from six to twelve weeks, three days per week.
  • Phase III-Cardiac Rehab
    Once patients have “graduated” from the Phase II program, they are eligible for the maintenance exercise program. This allows individuals to continue with supervised exercise sessions and lifestyle modifications. This phase is not normally covered by insurance. Unlimited exercise programs are available for a reasonable monthly charge

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

The pulmonary rehabilitation program is a multidisciplinary service designed to reduce and control the symptoms experienced by patients with moderate to very severe COPD as well as non-COPD pulmonary conditions. The goals of the pulmonary rehabilitation program are to relieve symptoms, improve health status and enhance health related quality of life.
