NEWBERRY, Mich. (WLUC) - Helen Newberry Joy Hospital announced its Cardiac Rehabilitation Program will resume services on Monday, November 2.

The program had previously been put on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We know how important this program is to our community, but we also wanted to ensure the safety of participants. Program Leader, Kaleb Powell, is excited to get the program back up and running and begin working with our patients in a safe and healthy environment,” said Rehabilitation Services Director, Jen Lusk.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 amongst this compromised patient population, HNJH has several safety measures in place. They include:

  • Patients will be encouraged to use our hand sanitizing stations located in the Wellness Center.
