About the rehabilitation center


Cardiac rehabilitation is intended to help patients return to their normal daily activities at work and at home while instilling proper lifestyle habits.

The rehabilitation center is a well-designed center with the most modern fitness equipment and machines, and serves the citizens of the southern area of Israel. Patients get one year of rehabilitation covered financially by the HMOs. The program includes twice a week exercise under the supervision of a cardiologist, nurse, exercise physiologist and fitness coach.

Monitors and a cardiac defibrillator are the standard of care in the center.
