Cardiac Wellness Center

Cardiac Wellness CenterAccredited Chest Pain CenterSalinas Valley Memorial Hospital Cardiac Wellness Center is focused on providing comprehensive cardiac care and wellness services designed to assist patients and their family members who have - or who may be at risk of developing - cardiovascular disease. If you have experienced a heart attack, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, valve surgery, angioplasty/stent or heart transplant, a cardiac rehabilitation program can help stabilize, slow or even reverse the progression of heart disease.

Every patient is unique. Working with a cardiologist and a team of other specialists, the staff at the SVMH Cardiac Wellness Center will tailor a program specific to your clinical needs and will design a proven program to help improve health and reduce the risk of future cardiovascular events. The program includes medically supervised exercise, education, support and encouragement in a safe, monitored setting. Studies show that patients who participate in cardiac rehab soon after a heart attack, procedure or surgery have a reduced risk of recurrence, better mental and physical functioning and improved quality of life.

The Salinas Valley Memorial Cardiac Wellness team features a cardiologist who oversees the program, registered nurses, exercise physiologists and a registered dietician—all with specialized training. Our team works closely with you and your family to help you gain confidence in moving toward a full recovery.
