How Do I Participate?
Referral from your physician is required prior to admission to the outpatient program. An Evaluation appointment is then scheduled with the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Coordinator. At the completion of your program, you will be invited to join the Maintenance phase. During this phase, you will be monitored while exercising at our gym which is offered 3 days a week. In addition, a monthly “Better Breathers Club” meeting is offered through the American Lung Association which offers education and continued support at no additional charge.
