If you’ve experienced some type of medical condition affecting your lungs, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, or COPD, you may find yourself struggling to recover. Pulmonary rehab is specially designed to help patients with lung diseases and those recovering after lung surgery improve their quality of life and reduce their symptoms. Those experiencing lung issues following a COVID-19 diagnosis can also benefit.

During this outpatient program, participants take part in supervised and monitored exercise, paired with educational sessions about managing lung disease, breathing more efficiently, and improving well-being. Our goal is to equip you with the information and resources you need to live your best life.
