Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a necessary and extremely beneficial program for people with chronic respiratory disease in order to help return to, and maintain, their maximal functional independence. 

Holyoke Medical Center provides our community with outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation under the direction of board certified pulmonologists.

Our program addresses a variety of respiratory diagnoses, including:

  • COPD (emphysema, chronic bronchitis)
  • Alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency
  • Occupational lung disease
  • Post-surgical procedures
  • Asthma
  • Lung cancer
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Airway obstructions
  • Interstitial lung disease

Education and training are key aspects of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. Individualized exercise program and scheduled classes are provided. Progressive aerobic exercise is an important therapeutic component utilizing stationary bicycles, treadmills, and other equipment. Additionally, strength training using resistive bands and weights are included. Participants are monitored during exercise for  oxygen level, heart rate, blood pressure, and tolerance.

A physician’s referral is necessary to begin the program.

The program is operated Monday through Friday: 7 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., 1:30 – 3 p.m.
