Improve Your Quality of Life
Copley Hospital's Cardiac-Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program can help improve your quality of life and help you reach a higher level of functioning. You'll exercise, retrain your breathing and develop coping and support skills to better manage your condition.
If you are recovering from a heart attack, bypass surgery, stent placement or other heart event or live with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, emphysema, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer and lung cancer surgery, lung volume reduction surgery before and after lung transplantation, and pulmonary hypertension, or any other disease affecting your lungs, you could benefit from this program.
• reduced shortness of breath
• reduced hospitalization
• improved well-being and quality of life
• better exercise tolerance
• all the benefits that come from having a network of support
To Get Started
You will need your physician's referral and an initial evaluation is necessary. In the evaluation, we'll determine a baseline level of function and work with you to develop your personal goals and work plan. We ask that you quit smoking before beginning the program.
