Gawlicki Family COPD Disease Management Program
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a progressive disease that requires a lifetime of management. Our COPD Disease Management Program offers care on both an inpatient and outpatient basis to help you maintain a stable state of health and wellness. We provide on-going care, risk assessment, and self-management education so you learn how live your best life with COPD.
How We Treat
The outpatient COPD program helps to reduce risk of relapse through education about the disease, pulmonary rehabilitation, nutritional counseling, oxygen monitoring, and medication management. If you require acute hospitalization for any issues regarding your COPD, you may be directly admitted to Hospital for Special Care from a hospital emergency room, or from a physician’s office for symptom management. Our staff will help coordinate with your primary care physician (PCP) and/or home care agency.
