Cardiac Rehabilitation Center

For seniors needing cardiac rehabilitation after surgery or illness, The New Jewish Home and NYU Langone Health have collaborated to create a state-of-the-art short-stay cardiac rehabilitation unit on the Manhattan Health and Rehabilitation campus.

Our specialty Cardiac Rehabilitation unit, located on our Manhattan campus on the Upper West Side, helps cardiac patients recover and regain strength so they can return home. This interdisciplinary program provides specialized in-patient rehabilitation for adults with heart failure and cardiac disease.

Drawing on years of experience with cardiac rehabilitation and using the latest clinical techniques and equipment, the Cardiac Rehabilitation Center helps seniors recover from cardiac issues and learn to best manage their health to stay healthy and active.

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program

Cardiac rehabilitation offers individualized rehabilitation, exercise therapy, and support for seniors recovering from a cardiac episode or surgery. In addition to therapies, the cardiac rehabilitation program provides patients and their families counseling and education to help understand and manage the cardiac condition and maintain general health and quality of life.

Patient Education

A key component of the program’s success is patient education. The Heart Failure Program empowers patients, along with their families and caregivers, to be active participants in managing their health by:

• Recognizing when a doctor or emergency care provider is needed

• Providing education regarding medication management

• Managing stress and mental health issues

• Designing and maintaining a heart-healthy diet and weight management

• Understanding routine tests and treatments

Recovering and Going Home

When a patient of the cardiac rehabilitation program has recovered enough to return to her or his home, a plan is developed to support the senior’s safety and continued recovery. Coordinating with the senior’s family and physician, the care team prepares recommendations for services, such as in-home rehabilitation, nursing, and Home Health Aides, or other supports the senior may need. The goal is not just to help seniors recover and go home. It’s to help them stay well at home.

Recovery is Hard Work

After a day of rehabilitation and therapy, the Manhattan Health and Rehabilitation campus offers seniors beautiful gardens and public spaces to visit with family and friends. An extensive range of social, cultural, and recreational activities are available. There is free Wi-Fi for seniors and their visitors. On staff, clergy provide spiritual support for seniors and families, and regular religious services are offered for multiple faiths.
