Testimonials"Recovering from bypass surgery, as I found out is definitely a team effort. The EMTs doing their jobs, doctors and nurses who perform the surgery, your family and friends for their loving care and patience, and finally the GREAT WORK by STRH Wellness Center Cardiac Rehab program. They took me from someone who could not walk up a flight of stairs without sitting down to where I could go forty (40) minutes on the treadmill without missing a step. They provided me with important information as far as diet, eating habits, exercise routine, and some good common sense to leading a healthy life. All done in a friendly, caring, professional atmosphere! Thanks for all you did STRH Cardiac Rehab. You changed my life."
