Pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program of education and exercise to help you manage your lung disease. Classes are offered in a group setting so you can meet others with your condition. Exercising will help you increase your strength and become more active, so you can do the daily activities you enjoy. Our pulmonary specialists create individualized treatments to help you with your pulmonary disease, reduce your symptoms and improve your life. Should you need it, our programs will also include help with smoking cessation.

If you suffer from most types of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), interstitial lung disease or pulmonary hypertension, we offer a physician-prescribed program aimed at improving your quality of life. We’re here to get you back to your daily activities.
