A Breath of Fresh Air: Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehab – a Witherell Specialty

If you suffer from lung disease or are recuperating from cardiac surgery or certain heart conditions, know that you can turn to the Nathaniel Witherell Short Term Rehab Center with confidence. Our Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehab will help improve your lung function, build strength, and reduce symptoms. The object is to give you a better quality of life.

When you are admitted to The Nathaniel Witherell for Cardiac and Pulmonary rehab, our capable clinical team gives you a clinical needs assessment. This includes establishing your Base line Respiratory and Cardiac status, and working with you to establish your goals.

Our team of PTs, OTs, RTs and RN’s incorporates your Surgeon’s and attending physician’s report. The team often consults with a Pulmonologist and Cardiologist to provide high quality, patient-centered care that starts from the day of admission.

Your personal treatment plan is formulated with and centered by your goals. We employ the best treatment modalities in rehab, five days a week,  following a structured  and carefully-monitored exercise program, and state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. Our goal is to get you back to a safe, functional level, and home with your family within 20 days.
