Cardiac Rehabilitation

A cardiac rehabilitation program takes place in a hospital, such as Norton County Hospital, or in the community. "Rehab" is for patients who are getting better after heart problems or surgery. For patients who have had heart conditions, one of the best things they can do is get into a rehab program.

Ruth Mizell, RNContact Information

Cardiac rehab is located on the lower level, next to Rehabilitation (physical therapy). The easiest way to get there is through the Outpatient/Specialty Clinic entrance, and take the elevator down to the basement. Cardiac Rehab is just across from the elevator. You may park in the main hospital lot.

Hours vary based on patient appointments. For more information, contact:
