Western Health provides Cardiac Rehabilitation programs located within the Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) centres at Sunshine Hospital and Williamstown Hospital. This is an important part of long term care of people who have heart problems. Heart problems include heart attack, angioplasty/stent and heart surgery.
Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) Rehabilitation is also provided at Sunshine Hospital. CHF is the inability of the heart to supply enough blood flow to the body.
Both these programs aim to help people with heart disease learn more about their condition, how to manage it and how to reduce the risk of further problems in the future.
