Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Weights2St. Luke’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation outpatient program is designed to help patients increase their endurance and quality of life after experiencing a variety of lung conditions. St. Luke’s is certified by the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation outpatient program of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR)—a gold standard that gives our patients and families confidence that they’re in safe hands.

The cornerstone of our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is a customized nutrition and medically-monitored exercise program, designed by our dynamic team of certified specialists.
