Cardiac Recovery Program
According to the American Heart Association, Congestive Heart Failure affects approximately 6 million people in the United States and over 500,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year. It is the leading cause of hospitalizations in people over 65 years old, and causes more than 12 million doctor visits per year.
Our Cardiac Recovery Program was developed for individuals newly diagnosed or with chronic congestive heart failure (CHF).
The goal of Constellation’s Cardiac Recovery Program is to facilitate a safe transition for patients from a healthcare setting back to their home, through the use of education. Our main focus is to empower the patient and family members by providing the tools and education necessary to make dietary and lifestyle changes. These changes will ultimately result in a maximum level of patient independence and reduce the risk for re hospitalizations.
