Mayor Kendall Lane recently presented a Proclamation recognizing the quality services of Farnum Rehabilitation Center at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene (CMC/DHK).

In recognition of National Rehabilitation Week 2012, Mayor Kendall Lane proclaimed September 16 - 22, 2012 as National Rehabilitation Week in Keene, NH and extended to the staff members of the Farnum Rehabilitation Center the official congratulations and gratitude of the City of Keene for their 25 years of quality rehabilitative care to our community.

Many people are living more active lives, living longer and surviving more illnesses and trauma than ever before. When individuals find themselves with a temporary or permanent injury or disability, CMC/DHK's Farnum Rehabilitation Center offers a long history of providing high-quality, non-surgical approaches to diagnose and manage the challenges of the healing process and living with a physical disability. "The Farnum Rehabilitation Pulmonary Rehab Program has taught me how to lead a fuller life with COPD," said patient Doug Pleasanton. "Because of the exercise program, learning about breathing techniques, medications, and stress management, I have definitely been able to maintain a healthier lifestyle."

Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene is a nonprofit community hospital and clinic with a mission to lead our community to become the nation's healthiest through our clinical and service excellence, collaboration, and compassion for every patient, every time. Founded by CMC/DHK, Vision 2020 is a community-wide health initiative designed to actively engage the citizens of Cheshire County in the process of becoming the nation's healthiest community by 2020.
