Pulmonary Programs and Services

Our patients in the pulmonary program go through a continuum of care designed to asses and treat their individual needs. The goal of our services is to improve your medical conditions while providing individualized education to you and your family so you have improved confidence completing daily activities at home. While the primary focus is to strengthen and rehabilitate your lungs and reduce or eliminate your dependence on oxygen through an artificial airway, ventilator or other breathing machine, physical rehabilitation and wellness are equally important in helping you breathe on your own.

How we help you become more independent

Your pulmonary issues may come from multi-system problems or varying lung diseases that require ongoing treatment after acute care. Our team works with you so you can live the most full and rewarding life. Our outpatient programs give you the strength and education you need to remain healthy.
