You may come to us on physician's orders or on you own where patients pay just $35.00 per month. A patient's insurance usually pays for 36 visits with a physician's order. Come visit us and be apart of our Cardiac Rehabilitation family.

Patient Testimonials"...It is truly a great opportunity for all of us heart patients to acquire (or be reminded of) the things that help us maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. We are offered advice concerning exercise appropriate to our age and current health. We are monitored regularly; giving our primary care physician a great advantage when evaluating his/her diagnosis. But probably the most valuable asset in the program is the positve atmosphere and the camaraderie amongst the patients and staff. A smile of encouragement can be priceless when other things seem out of control. I've nursed my friend and my husband through heart by-pass surgery and have attended with them the heart rehab classes offered by two different (and much larger) hospitals. Their programs don't come close to what this tiny hospital offers in information and follow-up for heart rehabilitation. We are so very fortunate to have such a fine staff maintaining high standards in this rural area..."

In 1949 a Chamber of Commerce hospital committee was formed and began taking the first steps toward a visionary project -Ward Memorial Hospital. The Chamber's "Hospital Committee" compiled the costs of building a new hospital to present to taxpayers -the first hospital bond issue was defeated in 1950. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. After one private hospital discontinued practice due to inadequate facilities, leaving only one that could handle just 23 patients, the need for a county hospital was again fronted to the citizens in 1953. With the support of local doctors, civic groups and women's clubs, a bond election was called in March of 1954. In June of 1954 the voters voted six-to-one in favor of a county hospital.
