Experience the Encouragement

Experience the Encouragement at FMC"They Treated Me Like I Was Family"

When Steve Wasem’s cardiac rehab at Fairfield Medical Center ended in early 2017, the Lancaster resident couldn’t help but feel a little sad. “This experience has been such a blessing,” he said of cardiac rehab. “Everyone was very encouraging; when they come to work, they’re all about you.”

In September 2016, Wasem underwent triple bypass surgery at FMC. He said it was important to him to receive his care at his hometown hospital. Within weeks, he was settled into cardiac rehab, which gave him the structured routine and education he needed to take that first step toward a healthier lifestyle.

“They bring you in and start you slow, and they treat you the same way they would if you were a member of their family,” Wasem said. “Today, I’m in better shape than I have been in years.”

FMC’s cardiac rehabilitation program offers an individualized and personalized treatment plan, including education and instruction on physical activity, nutrition and stress management, for patients recovering from heart surgery or heart-related complications. Experience the FMC level of care
