At the Y, we're always looking for ways for help you along your wellness path.  
WakeMed Cardiac Rehab at the Y

Our community health partner, WakeMed, now offers Cardiac Rehab at the Kraft Family YMCA in Apex. WakeMed’s Cardiac Rehab program provides patients who have had a recent heart attack, cardiac surgeries or even a heart transplant, with a safe, monitored environment to live a heart-healthy life.

Treatment is medically directed by a cardiologist and provided by a highly qualified professional staff.

“It’s a great alternative for patients and a positive collaboration among the physicians, the Y and WakeMed,” said Dr.Richard Daw, a cardiologist with Wake Heart and Vascular Associates.

Operated by WakeMed Healthworks, the program’s medical director is Dr. Pratik Desai, FACC,a cardiologist with Cary Cardiology.

“Patients in our area now have easy access to the same medically directed cardiac rehabilitation program that is available at WakeMed’s Raleigh Campus,” he said.

The Kraft Family YMCA is located at 8921 Holly Springs Road in Apex.Cardiac Rehab Program sessions will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 to 8 a.m.
