Rehabilitation Services


Southeast Colorado Hospital District's Rehabilitation Department provides comprehensive physical, occupational, speech and swallowing therapy at inpatient, swing, outpatient, and home health settings.
Our mission is to educate our community in the protection of their health and well-being through physical, mental and social support by establishing safe and proper functional movement, lifestyle modification and enhancement, and community integration. We aim to restrict and reduce pain, strengthen weaknesses, improve safety and independence, and promote desirable lifestyle via exercise and healthy habits.

Cardio Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation involves adopting heart-healthy lifestyle changes to address risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This cardiopulmonary program is designed to help patients adopt lifestyle changes, includes exercise training, education on heart-healthy living, and counseling to reduce stress and help Neighbors to return to an active life. The Southeast Colorado Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation team includes doctors, nurses, exercise specialists, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians or nutritionists, and mental health specialists. A case manager tracks care. The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Team will develop a state of the art program to meet each individual's needs.
