Respiratory and Ventilator Care Program

The Laurels of Heath implements protocols tailored to the patient’s requirements, while also providing complex nursing care for any underlying non-respiratory problems that may limit the patient’s success in the weaning process. The Respiratory Program is directed by Dr. Attila Lenkey who oversees a variety of respiratory diseases and disorders. We welcome guests who show potential for ventilator weaning, but also those that require long-term placement for a chronic ventilator. The Laurels of Heath is trained to handle your respiratory needs.
