Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilition

Samaritan Healthcare is proud to bring Cardiac Rehab to the Moses Lake community. Our skilled Exercise Physiologists will provide quality care for phase II and phase III cardiac rehab clients in our brand new state-of-the-art cardiac rehab clinic. Clients will benefit from initial fitness evaluations and risk assessments that will be used to determine their individual treatment plans for cardiac rehabilitation.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase II

EKG, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation will be closely monitored by our trained Exercise Physiologists with the help of the industry leading telemetry monitoring system called VersaCare Go.

Phase III

Our Exercise Physiologists will develop a maintenance plan for continued cardiac fitness progression.  

Clients will be under the close supervision of our Exercise Physiologists who are skilled in:

  • EKG/ECG interpretation

 Aroy Jr

Alan Roy is one of the new Exercise Physiologists to join the Samaritan Healthcare team. He graduated from Western Oregon with Honors obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology with a minor in Human Biology. While attending college Alan was part of the Cross Country, Indoor, and Outdoor Track distance teams. During his last term of schooling he obtained 500 observation hours in a cardiac rehab clinic at the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis. Alan moved to Moses Lake with his fiancée Holly in March 2016. His favorite part of this profession is watching the confidence build within clients as they find themselves in better health than when first entering into the program. When he is not at work he loves to spend time cooking or outdoors being active; be it running, biking, or gardening—anything outdoors. Before moving to Moses Lake Alan was a sponsored triathlete which inspired him to complete an Ironman that he is currently training for.
