  • Holton Community Hospital Enhances Rehabilitation Programs with New Exercise Bicycle

Holton Community Hospital History

New Exercise Bike for CVS at HCH.The Cardiovascular Services (CVS) Department Rehabilitation Programs at Holton Community Hospital (HCH) has proudly acquired a new exercise bicycle, thanks to two years of dedicated fundraising. This $8,000 piece of equipment was made possible by the extraordinary efforts of community partners like Beverly Brown Boutique, Heart to Home, and Lasting Impressions.

The funds were raised through community donations and the popular Kiss-A-Pig events, where the “winner” gets to kiss an adorable piglet. Nancy Kathrens, the Director of CVS, has won this event for two consecutive years. Not surprising since she is the “Florence Nightingale” of our cardiovascular services, Nancy is both a public champion for the department and a fan of piglets.

Cardiovascular Services at HCH offers a variety of rehabilitation programs, including:
– **Cardiac Rehab:** For those recovering from a heart attack, coronary balloon angioplasty or stent, heart surgery (including coronary artery bypass or valve surgery), or heart failure.
– **Pulmonary Rehab:** A certified chronic lung disease (COPD) treatment center, recognized by the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC) and the American Association of Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
– **Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET) Program:** For individuals experiencing leg pain due to peripheral vascular disease.
– **Wellness Exercise Program:** Supervised by registered nurses, available on a self-pay basis.

These programs will greatly benefit from the new exercise bicycle.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the community for its incredible support and generosity. As a critical access hospital for northeast Kansas, we strive to provide essential services that meet the direct needs and desires of our community. This achievement is a testament to the circle of support and care within our community.
