Pulmonary Medical Team
Because so much of the human body relies on oxygen, a multidisciplinary approach is essential to treating respiratory conditions. Our center of excellence’s pulmonary specialists, thoracic surgeons and critical care specialists regularly collaborate with experts in allergens, cardiology, otolaryngology, endocrinology, neurology, oncology, radiology and pediatrics.
Additional support is provided by a team of care managers, clinical nurse specialists, clinical social workers, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, physical therapists, respiratory care practitioners, registered nurses, registered pulmonary function technologists and registered sleep technologists. A nurse navigator offers individualized attention and support, and coordinates the transition of pulmonary care from the hospital to an outpatient setting.
