Participation in the rehabilitation programs requires a physician referral, and is covered by most insurance providers, Medicaid and Medicare. The new services are being provided at 118 E. Girard Ave. Appointment hours are from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Patients wishing to schedule an appointment for either cardiac rehabilitation or pulmonary rehabilitation should call 706.509.6040.
Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation can reduce a patient’s symptoms, reduce chances of having other health-related issues, improve energy and help a patient return to an active lifestyle, according to program directors Lee Clevenger and Jeff Thompson. In addition, patients learn to develop healthy behaviors and to better manage their disease, reducing their dependence on costly medical resources.
