Cardiac Rehabilitation

Although cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the US, there are millions of people who live with heart disease. For people who are diagnosed with heart disease, life can change in an instant. Cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) is a program that provides people with health education and exercise training that can improve their quality of life and reduce their risk of future health problems. Locally, cardiac rehab is offered at Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) in Greensburg, Indiana.

Pediatric Therapist

Decatur County Memorial Hospital in Greensburg, Indiana has a strong pediatric therapy center. In the most general sense, pediatric therapy would be any medical treatment designed to alleviate or help treat conditions in children, usually from birth to the age of 18.  Any condition that presents in the pediatric patient requiring treatment or remediation would essentially require some form of “therapy”. However, more often, the term may be used to discuss specific types of therapies that have use in the pediatric setting. These might include physical, occupational, and/or speech-language therapy designed specifically for children.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehab is inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation for patients with lung disease. We treat those who suffer from emphysema, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, or other lung diseases.
