Lodi News-Sentinel

Fred Hoffman recently spent some time in the new cardiac unit at Lodi Memorial Hospital. After open-heart surgery at a Sacramento hospital last year, the Herald resident drove to the center on South Fairmont Avenue and rode a stationary bicycle or walked on a treadmill while nurses monitored his heart rate, three days a week for 12 weeks. But it was the nutrition class created to keep patients healthy that Hoffman credits with changing his life.
