Heart disease is the number one cause of death in adults and is responsible for one in four deaths nationwide. If you’ve been diagnosed with heart diseases such as angina, have had a heart attack, cardiac surgery like coronary bypass or valve surgery, heart failure, coronary artery angioplasty or stents or you’ve had a heart transplant, our cardiac rehab team will personalize care to help you control and lessen the effects heart disease has on all aspects of your health—and your life.
Cardiac Rehab Is Critical for Health and Healing
Cardiac rehabilitation is a critical part of health and healing for people living with the lasting, often devastating impacts of heart disease. There are so many things that can be done to prevent the consequences of further damage. Our experienced providers become true partners to help patients navigate their condition and make an often-overwhelming disease easier to understand, providing them with the tools needed to live long and healthy lives.
Easy Access to Quality Healthcare
Amberwell exercise specialist Courtney Lewman believes that one of the many advantages of completing a cardiac rehabilitation program at Amberwell Atchison is the fact that we serve in the same community that a lot of our patients live. Often, the team sees patients two or three times a week and being close makes it easier for patients to get to their sessions and more likely to complete their programs in the most effective manner for their health. Lewman, who serves on Amberwell’s Wellness Committee, also feels that being able to develop personal connections with patients in the community improves their outcomes. “Having accessible healthcare in our community helps us gain camaraderie and trust with our patients," said Lewman. “Getting to know the patients helps us to personalize their care.”
Cardiac rehab at Amberwell Health is a customized and comprehensive program that includes treatment and education, focusing on those factors that can help reduce future risk such as diet and nutrition, exercise, stress management, and other related topics that can make your heart healthier, stronger, and lower the risk of further damage—and increase our patients’ quality of life.
Living and Serving in Atchison
For more than twenty-five years, our cardiac rehabilitation specialists have been serving our community to help patients regain their physical health and lessen the emotional impact of overcoming heart disease. Our experienced team provides compassionate care and stays with patients every step of the way. For us, helping patients restore health, and live full, healthy lives, is truly a work of heart.
Our cardiac rehab team loves living and serving in the Atchison community. Both are active in local churches and frequent local small businesses.
