We are the largest cardiac inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation program in the New York region. We care for a wide range of cardiovascular conditions, including angina, or chest pain; heart attack, or myocardial infarction; irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia; congestive heart failure; heart muscle conditions, such as cardiomyopathy; and peripheral vascular disease.  

We also care for people who have had coronary angioplasty and stenting; coronary artery bypass surgery; pacemaker or defibrillator placement; cardiac valve repair or replacement; and left ventricular assist device surgery.

Our medical team, staffed by NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation experts, as well as cardiology specialists, understands that improving and maintaining your cardiovascular health requires a holistic approach. We bring together physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists, recreational therapists, social workers, nutritionists, and exercise physiologists who work with you every step of the way to create a customized lifestyle plan that you can maintain in your daily life.
