Doris Schnuck Family Legacy Supports Rehabilitation for Cardiac Patients

Make a Gift
It was Doris Schnuck's thumbprint on the family business from the start. She remembers opening one of their stores on Geraldine and Harney in North
St. Louis. Doris and Don had been married only a few months before he left for Europe during WWII to serve in the Navy in 1946. At that time, confectionary shops were common in neighborhoods and meat markets were separate businesses.

"Pop, Don's father, came to me to say we have a store. We have to be ready to take it over in a few days," recalled Doris. Their strategy all along was to make it easy for customers, so they were the first to build a meat counter in the back of the store. It was an exciting time as plans for other locations in the St. Louis area developed.

Many admire Mrs. Schnuck for her kind spirit. She has thoughtfully and generously named the Cardiac Rehabilitation Gymnasium in the Desloge Outpatient Center. The Schnuck Family Cardiac Rehabilitation Gymnasium provides access to supervised exercise, education and counseling programs. A multidisciplinary team consisting of certified and trained professionals including a medical director, registered nurses, dietitian, physical therapist, exercise physiologist and athletic trainers work with patients.

In addition, St. Luke's is the only area cardiac rehabilitation clinic to have a psychologist on staff. The rehabilitation program includes three distinct phases, all designed to allow the patient to better manage their health following their cardiac procedure or event.

"Dr. Ernest 'Sonny' Rouse has been taking care of me for years. His father was my doctor too. I'm so fortunate to have excellent medical care from St. Luke's," said Doris Schnuck.
