New cardio rehab center at Waterbury Hospital

Waterbury Hospital has announced its new cardiopulmonary rehabilitation center, meeting what hospital officials feel is an increasing need.

The newly renovated space more than doubles the size of the cardiopulmonary rehab space at Waterbury Hospital. The space is bright with large windows and has a separate waiting room and private changing rooms, according to the hospital. The number of patients who can exercise in the space went from eight to 12, providing better access to the medically supervised program that optimizes the physical, psychological and social functioning of patients with cardiac and/or respiratory issues.

The hospital is planning an open house at the facility on April 19, from 3-5 p.m. in its cardio rehab center, Room 1400.

“We had outgrown the space we used over the years,” said spokesperson Lauresha Xhihani. “As we added more services in recent years, including transaortic valve replacement, the need increased. At one point, we had a wait list. We’re happy to say we don’t have a waiting list anymore. ”

Waterbury Hospital’s cardiopulmonary rehabilitation is a medically supervised program to optimize patients with cardiac and/or respiratory issues. Waterbury Hospital’s program is staffed with registered nurses, respiratory therapists and exercise specialists and is accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
