Speare’s Cardiac Rehab – Changing Lives for 10 Years
Building Better Hearts was the established goal of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, or Cardiac Rehab, when it was introduced as a new service at Speare Memorial Hospital on October 24, 2005. Opened as part of the hospital’s then recent renovation and expansion, the Cardiac Rehab program was developed in response to a community health need. Today, Cardiac Rehab at Speare is celebrating its 10th anniversary with nearly 500 graduates of the program.
William Green has the honor of being the first graduate of Speare’s Cardiac Rehab program. Before his heart attack William says, “I was not an exercise person in any way, shape or form.” A decade later he remains a changed man, continuing to exercise at RehabFIT at least three days a week.
William explains that after his prescribed Cardiac Rehab program he immediately enrolled in the Maintenance Program, where he continued to exercise three days a week. Once RehabFIT opened in 2010, he became a member up there. He says, “I’ve been very fortunate. Cardiac Rehab saved my life, and today I’m doing very well.”
