Pulmonary Rehabilitation has been shown to increase quality of life, improve exercise tolerance, decrease dyspraxia, and reduce healthcare costs. The purpose of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is to provide multidisciplinary interventions (PT, OT, and ST) for patients with chronic respiratory conditions to maximize function, reduce respiratory symptoms, improve quality of life, and prevent hospital re-admissions.
