LMH plans open house to dedicate unit

Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the LMH Endowment Assn. will sponsor a community open house and dedication from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to celebrate the newly expanded Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Unit.

It is also used by patients who are diagnosed with unstable angina or coronary artery disease.
