Outpatient Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation
UPMC Mercy is part of the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation network of services offered by the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute and UPMC Comprehensive Lung Center. Our services are offered at the conveniently located UPMC Mercy Green Tree Outpatient Center, an all-new, state-of-the-art facility serving Pittsburgh’s South Hills.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a doctor-prescribed exercise program focused on helping you strengthen your heart and physical endurance. Our specialized team of cardiac care professionals will create an individual treatment plan to meet your specific needs and goals. They will work to ensure that you have the knowledge, tools, and support you need to recover quickly and develop a healthier lifestyle through exercise, nutritional counseling, smoking cessation, and the control of other risk factors.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a doctor-prescribed exercise program for individuals with chronic lung disease. Through a combination of both education and exercise, our specialists will give you the support needed to develop a healthier lifestyle, increase your level of activity, and lessen your shortness of breath.
