Pulmonary Rehab

Patients with pulmonary problems, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), can experience improved quality of life and return to higher levels of functioning through our outpatient therapy program. The program combines exercise, education, and breathing and relaxation techniques.

About the Program

The team at Premier Health believes a holistic approach is most beneficial. Family physicians, medical directors, nurses, exercise physiologists, and respiratory therapists work together with you and your family. In fact, family participation is encouraged in planning sessions.

The program follows a goal-oriented educational and therapeutic approach customized to meet your individual needs. A nurse, respiratory therapist, and exercise physiologists are available at all times to help you and your family and to answer questions that may arise during the program. Specific program areas include:

  • Chest infection awareness and control
