Your Cardiac Nurse Liaison

If you've had a heart attack, angioplasty, or heart surgery your Cardiac Nurse Liaison will be there to support your recovery during and after your hospital stay. Your personalized "care guide", will offer guidance and education about your diagnosis, procedure, and what to expect while you recover. Periodic updates will also be provided to your family.

In addition, discharge planning and interaction with the insurance companies are services provided on your behalf. As a member of the Cardiac Rehab Team, your nurse liaison will coordinate your in-patient cardiac rehabilitation, and provide referrals to an out-patient center for your return to home.
