After patients experience serious heart problems such as a heart attack, heart failure or open-heart surgery, cardiac rehabilitation offers a real path toward recovery.
Cardiac rehab is a personalized treatment plan that includes supervised exercise and education on nutrition, stress management and other lifestyle changes. Cardiac rehab helps patients live longer and reduces the likelihood that they will have another heart attack.
Next year, for the first time, this important service will be available in Ruidoso at the new Lincoln County Medical Center (LCMC). Learn more in the
