SMC temporarily suspends cardiopulmonary rehab program
Samaritan Medical Center

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Samaritan Medical Center is temporarily suspending its cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program.

It hasn't been operational since March because of COVID-19, but because the threat of the virus is still out there, and the patients are considered a vulnerable population, SMC is referring current and future cardiopulmonary rehab patients to other facilities.

SMC is also thinking about relocating the program - moving it from the 4th floor of the hospital - as a way to keep the rahab patients safe.
