Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center is dedicated to helping people living with chronic lung conditions, such as COPD, live the fullest lives possible. While there is no cure, our services can help patients reduce symptoms, manage anxiety, increase the ability to exercise and improve the quality of life.
Pulmonary Rehab can help with:
- shortness of breath
- quality of life
- ability to perform tasks of daily living
We work in conjunction with your pulmonologist and/or primary care physician. A physician referral is required. Respiratory therapists lead the program. Most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, recognize the benefits of Pulmonary Rehab, and cover our services. Ordinary deductibles and co-payments apply; check with your insurance company for specific details.
