WESTARM Therapy & Nursing offers “Healthy Heart” program at the Pittsburgh Mills

Wednesday, June 15, 2011 – WESTARM Therapy & Nursing of Lower Burrell, PA has begun to offer a Healthy Heart program at their Pittsburgh Mills facility in Frazer, PA. The sessions will be held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:30am to 9:00am.

With the recent closing of several local cardiac rehab programs including Allegheny Valley Hospital and UPMC St. Margaret Hospital, it was determined by Brian R Jacob, President of WESTARM, that there was a definite need for this service.

This Phase III cardiopulmonary program is designed for individuals recovering from a heart attack, heart surgery, or those prone to cardiac disease. Those prone to cardiac disease may fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • High Cholesterol and / or High Triglycerides
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Strong Family History of Coronary Heart Disease
  • Cigarette Smokers
  • Obese Individuals

The group exercise sessions include multi-station aerobic exercises. These sessions will be supervised by Maggie Saracco, an Exercise Physiologist specifically trained to work in cardiac exercise and prevention. Although participants will be exercising with many others who share similar needs, the program will be specifically designed for each individual.

The fee for these sessions is $50 per month. For more information please contact WESTARM at 724-274-4333.

WESTARM is a Medicare Certified Rehabilitation Agency that has been in business for over 28 years. They offer outpatient Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy at eight (8) facilities and Skilled Nursing Homecare primarily located in the Alle-Kiski Valley area.
