Show Your Heart Some Love
Free Heart Health Screenings at Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital

Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital is celebrating National Cardiac Rehabilitation Week with a free open house on Wednesday, February 13, from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

 

Show your heart some love by attending the event at the hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Department for free screenings to assess your heart health. We’ll check your blood pressure, height, weight, and body mass index (BMI)—all for free.

 

   

You’ll also learn more about how to manage heart disease, blood pressure, cholesterol, and stress while you tour the recently refurbished Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Department. We’re located in the building next to the hospital, at 2030 Viborg Road, Suite 108. For more information, please call us at 805-686-3990.

 

Founded in 1988, the hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Department is a medically supervised outpatient program which includes monitored exercise sessions with assessment, education and counseling by registered nurses as well as nutrition classes with a registered dietitian.

 

“We see patients within weeks of their cardiac events such as heart attacks and cardiac procedures like angioplasty, coronary stents, and open heart surgeries,” explains Marsha Griggs, RN-BC, coordinator of the department. “We are proud to help our patients achieve their health and wellness goals.”
