Orthopedic Services

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. 

Cardiac Rehabilitation

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.  For more information, please contact our Wellness Coordinator at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1297.

Diabetes Education Program

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. For more information, please call (775) 623-5222, ext. 1756.
