Is Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab for me?

Prior to beginning any type of exercise program, it is important to consider your individual needs and a referral from your physician to ensure you are healthy enough for exercise. At CMH, we are proud that our patients have the peace of mind being monitored by registered nurses that are certified in advanced cardiac life support. Due to our nurses' advanced skills and the personal attention given, patients can feel safe as they embark on a healthier lifestyle.

Citizens Memorial Hospital offers pulmonary rehabilitation for individuals healing from long-term effects of COVID, also called long COVID-19 or long-haul COVID-19. Due to the nature of the virus, many patients experience difficulty breathing, even after the virus has left the body. Patients that require ventilators are at an even higher risk of long-term effects. Post COVID-19 symptoms are conditions that persist for more than four weeks after diagnosis. Individuals may experience symptoms for weeks and even months following a COVID-19 diagnosis.
