Cardiac Rehabilitation and Imaging Now Open at Meridian Health Village at JacksonMeridian Health Village at Jackson is once again "turning on the lights" with the opening of Meridian Cardiac Rehabilitation and Imaging. The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program provides a range of recovery and post-recovery services to speed up a patient's recuperation, while minimizing their symptoms, increasing their cardiovascular endurance, and improving their quality of life.
Services available include EKG, Holter monitor, echocardiograms, vascular ultrasound, and more. Cardiac rehabilitation is recognized as an essential factor in recovering from heart disease, and consists of medically supervised exercise, nutrition counseling and education programs that are intended to strengthen the heart. Patients who may be eligible for cardiac rehabilitation include those recovering from a heart attack, coronary artery bypass surgery, valve surgery, angioplasty, congestive heart failure, as well as individuals who have cardiovascular risk factors, such as smoking, obesity, stress, sedentary lifestyle, high cholesterol and triglycerides, diabetes, or electrocardiogram abnormalities along with another cardiac diagnosis.
The facility is open Monday through Friday. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 732-987-6081. A physician referral is required.
Meridian Health Village at Jackson is a "one stop shop" for better health and wellness. Meridian Fitness and Wellness, outpatient rehabilitation and the conference center is now open, and many primary care and specialty physicians have opened offices in the facility. Additional services are being steadily added, such as more specialty physicians, cancer services, pharmacy, and more. This state-of-the-art medical facility offers both private health care services and services that are traditionally limited to locations within hospitals all under one roof in an easily accessible environment.
