The Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont unveiled its new and expanded cardiac rehab center Tuesday which allows for increased patient care capacity. With the new cardiac rehab center, which is over double the size of the old facility, patients can be seen in a more timely fashion. “This is wonderful. The other one was kind of a athletic sweatbox almost. It was about a third of the size I’d say to be accurate. They would have several of us in their at the time and when we were all on the machines it was cramped and close together. This is going to be a great improvement for everybody,” says former patient Don McGregor.
