If you live with or are recovering from a heart or lung disease or disorder, the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester (formerly Lawrence Hospital) offers a combination of monitored exercise, education, and support to help improve your function and quality of life.

About Our Program

When your physician refers you to a rehabilitation therapist at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester, you will receive an initial evaluation to assess your physical ability, as well as to help establish your personal goals. Based on the information from your initial evaluation and in collaboration with your physician, our staff will design an individual exercise program to meet your medical needs.
