Earlier this year, HCMC launched its Pulmonary Rehabilitation program.

“HCMC has wanted to provide this program to patients for many years, but with the long term effects of COVID-19, it seemed even more imperative to implement this program in the community,” said Pam Hessing, Charge Nurse for the Pulmonary Rehab program. “We have been working with our medical director, Dr. Carruth, to ensure that we have a program that includes exercise and education for improved quality of life for our patients.”

The program has a second phase, which includes exercise and education, according to HCMC.
