Once the procedures are completed patients return to care at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital for rehabilitation. The communication process is seamless since both hospitals are on the same systems.

According to Frazier the new heart center is designed to open with state-of-the-art technology and can update easily as technology and treatment methods evolve. Also the center has a special tribute to Dr. John Malory, a leading cardiologist from Grass Valley, who recently moved out of state.
