Support Services for Heart Care

Connect With a Support System

We're here to help you and your loved ones learn to manage your heart disease.

When you have heart disease, you may need support to manage the lifestyle changes that come along with the condition. At New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC), you have an entire team of cardiac care specialists on your side.

Helping You Live Well With Heart Disease

Join our heart disease support group to connect with others who have a heart condition. Share tips for managing diet, exercise, medications, and more. Learn about the different types of heart disease at our support meetings – held in the evenings for your convenience.

Support Services Before or After Your Procedure

We provide cardiac rehabilitation therapy to those who have undergone a heart procedure, have had a heart attack, or who are living with heart disease. This therapy focuses on exercise, education, and stress management.

When you participate in our cardiac rehabilitation program, you get access to:

  • Exercise sessions monitored by specially trained exercise physiologists
  • Dietary counseling with a clinical nutritionist
  • Education on heart-healthy lifestyle topics – such as medication management – with expert cardiac team members
