Individuals that live with chronic lung disease such as COPD (Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis) and restrictive disease (Pulmonary Fibrosis) are often unable to fully participate in their own lives and the lives of their family and friends. Treatment can be confusing and frustrating for both patients and those who care for them at home. Springfield Hospital’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program offers a comprehensive outpatient program to serve the needs of the chronic lung disease patients in our region. Our goal is to improve the comfort, function and understanding for our patients who struggle with these challenging diseases. The patient’s quality of life and functional ability can be improved by attending a pulmonary rehabilitation program. But the family can also receive training, education and support in caring for their loved ones by the rehab staff and guest speakers.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is located at Springfield Hospital on level B.
Tomorrow’s goals can only be attained by what we have accomplished today.
