Whether you’re recovering from joint-replacement surgery, an injury treated in our Emergency Department, or a traumatic event such as a stroke, the Rehabilitation Department at Mercy Medical Center will help you achieve the best recovery possible. We want to get you moving again.
Stroke is a life-threatening condition, but patients and doctors – working together can take steps to prevent it. That’s why we focus on providing both stroke treatment and prevention services to our community.
If you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of a stroke, call 9-1-1 immediately.

The goal of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is to assist patients in achieving the highest level of physical and mental well being possible. This is achieved by exercise therapy and breathing techniques that enhance physical conditioning and functioning, as well as education and counseling about self-care activities, medication regimes, stress management, nutrition, and infection control.
