Cardiac Rehab Makes Each Day a Positive, Wonderful Experience

The first day Harry George came to Cardiac Rehab for his initial assessment, he was in a wheel chair. Nearly a year after open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve due to a bacterial infection, Harry was dancing down the halls of Speare.

“Now I have two birthdays,” Harry says. “My actual birthday on October 22 and the day I was saved on August 30.” But his journey back has been a long one. Following his surgery, Harry was unable to walk or eat. However determination, a positive attitude, and giving Cardiac Rehab everything he had, have helped him recover. He says, “I’m very excited about life and what it takes to make each day a positive, wonderful experience. The Speare Cardiac Rehab program was very important on my road to feeling this way, and if I’m going to give any kudos, it is to Cardiac Rehab.”

Cardiac Rehabilitation at Speare Memorial Hospital is celebrating its 10th anniversary and has graduated nearly 500 people from the program. The Cardiac Rehab program at Speare is medically prescribed and supervised, and nationally certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Working in tandem with your cardiologist, our exercise physiologists develop a specialized treatment plan for each patient.
