Pulmonary Program

Hillside Heights Rehabilitation Suites has a  Pulmonary Medical Specialty unit. Our goal is to maximize the patient’s level of independence and autonomy and increase the quality of life regardless of the condition or prognosis. The pulmonary team on this unit is lead by an independent Pulmonologist (a physician with expertise in managing conditions of the lungs) and staff trained specifically in the management of these conditions.

This unit focuses on the medical management and rehabilitation of those who have pulmonary conditions (conditions of the lungs and airways like COPD and pneumonia). We have oxygen that is piped in through the walls as well as medical air and wall suctioning available.

In an effort to maximize recovery and function based on individual and condition specific treatment planning. our clinicians provide services such as specialty pulmonary function/exercise capacity testing, Oxygen conservation techniques, endurance training, and provide pulmonary support groups/education as well as pulmonary specific outcomes/ condition impact measurements.

Pulmonary patients receive care at all levels, in a variety of treatment categories. At this time, we do not take ventilator patients (although this is in the near future) but we do provide care to patients who have recently been weaned from ventilator dependency.

Other types of pulmonary services include:

  • Tracheostomy - new - weanable and non-weanable
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • BIPap
  • C-Pap
  • Mini-Nebulizers


We understand choosing a physician is one of the most important health care decisions a person must make, each physician with privileges to practice at Hillside Heights Rehabilitation Suites has been credentialed and reviewed by our Medical Director Quality Assurance Committee. Although we do not employ physicians we have partnered with a variety of specialist to meet the needs of our patients.

The Medical Director will work with the patient’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) to promote continuity of care. We have an open panel for PCP’s and welcome them to follow patient care.
