WC Commissioners Proclaim Cardiac Rehab Week
(Honesdale, February 10, 2022)… Next week, February 13-19th is National Cardiac Rehabilitation Week, in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of improving your outcome from a heart event. The Wayne County Commissioners issued a proclamation at their meeting today in recognition of the week and the numerous success stories from Wayne Memorial Hospital’s (WMH) Cardiac Rehabilitation Department. Nadine Greco, MS, FAACVPR, manager of Cardiac Rehabilitation at WMH and her team provide medically supervised programs to help patients improve health and well-being, and change lifestyle habits through exercise training and education. Two of those patients, attorney Mark Zimmer and local business owner Jim Duffy, attended the Commissioners meeting as advocates for the WMH cardiac team. Both have regained active lifestyles, Zimmer after triple bypass surgery and Duffy following a heart attack.
