Under the direction of expert pulmonary specialists, our professional treatment team focuses on optimal patient care and exceptional outcomes.

Our multidisciplinary team monitors all aspects of our ventilator and respiratory care program. Maximizing individual outcomes and capabilities in a caring and compassionate setting is at the heart of our goal oriented program. We focus on effectively combining respiratory, nutrition, and diversified therapies that maximize the individual patient’s outcome.

The results are intended to strengthen the patient’s overall health status. As a result, we may then be able to wean the patients as they become stronger, physically and emotionally, within our care.
