Cardiac Health & Rehabilitation Centre
The Cardiac Health and Rehabilitation Centre (CHRC) at Hamilton General Hospital is an outpatient rehabilitation program for patients recovering from cardiac events, such as cardiac surgery, angioplasty or heart attack. The CHRC also accepts referrals for patients who may be at high risk for a cardiac event.
Our rehabilitation team includes professionals from nursing, kinesiology, nutrition and social work, who work together to help patients recover while reducing their risk for future heart problems. We offer the following programs:
- Nutrition counseling and nutrition education classes
- Exercise counseling and supervised exercise classes
- Group stress management classes
- Smoking cessation support
- Heart health education
Please note that you require a doctor’s referral to be seen at the centre.
