The facility features an elevated walking/jogging track, and a large monitored exercise area as part of our total outpatient cardiovascular rehabilitation program. Prevention services include nutrition education, stress management, smoking cessation and exercise.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Services

The outpatient clinic is located on the first floor of The Cardiac Center (3006 Webster Street, Omaha) and is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

Serving between 800-1,000 patients per month, the facility features an elevated walking/jogging track, and a large monitored exercise area. Additional prevention services include nutrition education, stress management, smoking cessation and exercise.

Patients also have access to the CDR-STAT line (1-800-237-7828).   The line is staffed by two registered nurses from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday to assist patients in scheduling appointments, tests or procedures, and in answering questions.    

Many of the patients who visit the clinic travel from long distances from Omaha.  Every attempt is made to see that a wide range of diagnostic testing is accomplished on the same day of the physician visit.  However, if an overnight stay is required, we provide rooms at the Park Inn, three blocks south of The Cardiac Center at a reduced rate.

Clinical Trials

The Cardiac Center is continuously involved in both pharmaceutical and device clinical trials, making some of the latest advances available to patients when traditional care is not successful. Trials are typically available for certain patients with diseases such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, heart attack, coronary artery disease and others.
