Cardiovascular Care With Heart

Our specialized cardiac program, under the leadership of cardiologist Dr. Scott Pfeffer, was designed to assist individuals recovering from a wide range of cardiac issues. Our all-encompassing care includes cardiac monitoring, daily rehabilitation, and a dedicated focus on lifestyle modification, healthy diet and exercise.

Oakwood’s Congestive Heart Failure prevention program was specially created to keep residents with CHF out of the hospital. Utilizing an interdisciplinary team approach to effectively monitor and treat these residents, our cardiac recovery team is comprised of a cardiologist, general practitioners, specialists, nurses, nutritionists, respiratory therapists and our rehabilitation department.
