Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is designed to help educate patients, decrease respiratory symptoms and complications, and improve overall physical and emotional well being for people with chronic lung diseases. Pulmonary rehab addresses several concepts and differs slightly from Cardiac Rehab by offering services such as:
  • Breathing Retraining
  • Gradually Increasing Exercise
  • Timeline (individualized for each patient)
  • Medicine Management and Education
  • Emotional Support
Rehabilitation is covered by Medicare and most insurance carriers upon meeting certain criteria. A doctor’s order is required.

If you feel you may benefit from HCCH’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program, contact your physician or our Cardio-Pulmonary Department at (660) 425-0265 for more information.
