Pulmonary Rehab

Breathing is taken for granted until it’s uncomfortable or difficult. Then, its fragility fills us with fear. Find comfort in knowing that HCM respiratory therapists and nurses help patients breathe better every day. While the road to recovery isn’t always easy, we believe the strength to recover is within you, and we’ll help you every step of the way. A physician’s referral is necessary for you to enter the program.

We’ll help you manage chronic lung disease through five steps:

  1. Assessment
  2. Patient training
  3. Exercise
  4. Education classes
  5. Follow-up
