Orthopedic Services. Humboldt General Hospital proudly introduced Orthopedic Services in 2015. With over 100 years experience in the diagnosis, treatment and surgical care of the body’s bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves, Humboldt General's four orthopedists can provide for our patients' general orthopedic needs. Whether patients need fracture care, carpal tunnel surgery, a meniscus repair or any number of other procedures to treat an injury, disease or condition, our physicians' first and most important job is to keep patients moving.

If you're recovering from a cardiac incident, walking on a treadmill may be the last thing you're interested in. You may feel tired and depressed and simply worried about survival—not about getting in a workout. But exercising under the watchful eyes of Humboldt General Hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation team may be the ticket, not just to survival but to a better quality of life. Cardiac Rehab is a 12-week outpatient exercise and education program designed to help heart patients reduce or control cardiac risk factors, improve cardiovascular fitness and adjust to living with heart disease. Our program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. For more information, please contact our Wellness Coordinator at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1297.
Humboldt General Hospital now offers a program aimed at helping people “live well” with diabetes. "Living Well with Diabetes” is an 8-week, comprehensive education program that is delivered to diabetes patients on a one-and-one and small-group basis. The program is covered by most insurances; for those who don't have insurance, the hospital may be able to provide financial assistance. Classes are offered throughout the year. Educational topics include disease risks, monitoring blood sugar, creating meal plans, remaining active, managing medications and more. Interested patients should obtain a referral from their primary physician. For more information, please call (775) 623-5222, ext. 1756.
