When Lou Frosh’s doctor referred him to the gym at what was then St. Vincent Regional Hospital in 1993, he expected to spend 12 weeks, three times a week in out-patient rehab for a heart attack. Twenty years later, now 92 and a community member, Frosh still comes to the gym most Monday and Friday afternoons.

Center for Living Well gym is one of Santa Fe’s best-kept secrets. It is located in the basement of the lower level on the southeast side of the hospital, now called Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. Most people initially are sent to the gym by their doctors because of cardiac and/or pulmonary problems. Medicare or other insurance programs usually cover those assignments.
