Catholic Health is partnering with Heart Smart for Life, a free community wellness program, to offer wellness classes for bariatric and cardiac rehabilitation patients at the new Sisters Metabolic Center for Wellness. These classes were developed to help patients regain their physical and emotional well-being.

Participants in the program will also receive incentives for completing all 3 classes. While this is encouraged, it is not mandatory for participants to attend all classes.
