MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT – In honor of Heart Awareness Month, Burtons Grill of South Windsor, 100 Evergreen Way, is offering a “Mango Salmon” dish. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN). The culinary delight includes fresh, North Atlantic salmon, lightly seasoned and seared, served over ginger soy brown rice with snap peas, and topped with a mango and red pepper salsa. The dish is available for lunch and dinner. To make a reservation, please call 860.432.4575.
ECHN's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, which is appropriate for people recovering from open heart surgery, heart attack, angina, angioplasty, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, and arrhythmia pacemaker implantation, combines education and carefully monitored exercise with group interaction and support. All participants are monitored while they exercise with a cardiologist's oversight. Both Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital have been awarded Program Certification for their Cardiac Rehabilitation Program by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). Certification recognizes those programs rigorously reviewed by a national board and found to meet the outlined essential requirements for standards of care.
A personalized Home Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is offered in conjunction with the Visiting Nurse & Health Services of Connecticut, for individuals who have trouble traveling to the hospital for the program.
For more information, call the Cardiac Rehabilitation Departments at Manchester Memorial Hospital (860.646.1222, Ext. 2166) or Rockville General Hospital (860.872.5171).
