Roberta G. Veloz Cardiovascular Center

We take the journey with you and your family, providing state-of-the-art heart care while educating you on healthy heart choices that will transform your lifestyle and quality of life.

Heart disease is the #1 killer in the United States. To address this statistic, Henry Mayo has expanded its Cardiovascular Services to include a broad range of cardiac care services. From diagnostic care through minimally invasive interventions to open heart surgery and cardiac rehabilitation, Henry Mayo’s team of specialists put their heart into ensuring the best cardiovascular care, right here in our community.

For someone who has had a cardiac event, a high-quality cardiac rehabilitation can play a key role in their recovery.

The skilled and experienced cardiac rehabilitation team at Henry Mayo provides a supportive environment where patients learn how to make lifestyle changes, including managing both their weight and the stress in their lives, adopting healthy dietary habits and developing a daily exercise routine. Henry Mayo’s cardiac rehabilitation team may include a patient’s family doctor, a heart specialist and a surgeon, nurses, exercises specialists, physical therapists, and dieticians or nutritionists. Each of these caring and professional staff members is specially trained to help our patients recover and achieve their healthcare goals.

The members of Henry Mayo’s cardiac rehab team also take an active role in teaching and focusing on issues such as chest pain and emergency management, smoking cessation, and managing cardiac medications. Heart patients will also benefit from a personal, one-on-one approach to heart health and healing and a commitment to recovery.

According to several clinical trials, participating in a cardiac rehabilitation program can lower the risk of having a future heart attack by 28 percent; reduce the need for heart-related medication; and provide relief from depression, fear and anxiety.

If you've had a coronary artery intervention or heart surgery or you have another heart condition, ask your doctor about joining a cardiac rehabilitation program. Health insurance and Medicare often cover the costs incurred in cardiac rehabilitation.
