Lung disease is a progressive disease for which there is no cure; as it worsens, patients and caregivers can become overwhelmed and quality of life can suffer.
Symptoms can be managed, however, if they are monitored closely. Our Lung Care program is specialized care designed for our patients’ needs and goals. We offer that care wherever you call home, in consultation with your pulmonologist (lung doctor).
Early detection and management of symptoms can help prevent emergency room visits and hospital readmissions. The Lung Care program offers 24/7 clinical support and care coordination among our specially trained team of nurse practitioners, physicians, and social workers. These professionals will visit your home or conduct virtual visits to ensure that treatment and medication plans are being followed and that any urgent issues are addressed. You’ll also have access to our Symptom Management toolkit to help you manage lung disease.
