Health & Wellness Institute Launches New Services for a Healthier You


At the Health & Wellness Institute, our mission is to increase health literacy within our community through education, screenings, and support. By educating our community about the importance of prevention and wellness, we truly become a healthcare organization rather than one that only treats the sick.

In addition to the many community health screenings, classes and lectures already in place, some new offerings include:

PreHab

This program helps patients prepare for surgery with tours and detailed information about what to expect before, during, and after a procedure. PreHab is patient-centered to reduce patient anxiety and ensure the best possible results.

Maintenance Exercise

If you need additional help getting fit or safely using fitness equipment, the maintenance exercise program may be right for you. This monitored program is specifically designed for patients in cardiac rehabilitation and will soon expand to include those with diabetes or prediabetes.

Tobacco Cessation

Carson Tahoe’s smoking and tobacco cessation program will now include new times and more direct collaboration with doctors. This is especially beneficial for those who might need tobacco cessation medication in addition to the support groups and classes.
