Patients plan rally to save CPMC cardiac exercise class
San Francisco Examiner

A 50-year-old class that helps once-hospitalized cardiac patients recover and rebuild strength in their hearts is in danger of closing to make room for patients who still need doctor-prescribed exercise.

Patients in Phase 3 of California Pacific Medical Center’s cardiac recovery program were notified last week of the closure of the class, slated for Thursday. Many said they worry they won’t have the same quality of care during their recovery.
