Question: How long does the cardiac rehab process take?

Answer: The standard outpatient “Phase 2” cardiac rehab program generally consists of 24 to 36 sessions (each about 1 hour), usually 2-3 times/week. So, the entire program can take between 8 and 18 weeks, depending on the specific schedule that is available at the facility and chosen by the patient.
