Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation is available for patients at risk for lung disease, or who have experienced lung problems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, primary pulmonary hypertension and long-term effects of COVID-19. Participating in rehab can help patients improve their quality of life through breathing training, muscle strengthening and building endurance; and helps to prevent future problems or complications.
