Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation
You’ll be admitted to hospital the morning of surgery or at the time your surgeon decides.
*A list from your pharmacy of the medicine you take would be helpful.*
Bring personal items in one small bag that has your name on it. All personal belongings will be given to your support person to be brought back to you after surgery. After surgery they can also bring other things you might need. Your nurse can give you more information.
The hospital is not responsible for lost items.
