Breathing Easier with Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Disease

Pulmonary rehabilitation at our hospital can slow the progression of long-term pulmonary diseases, like emphysema and COPD.

How rehabilitation can make a difference

Through an individualized treatment plan, including advanced assessment, supervised exercise and education, patients learn how to manage their condition, live better and avoid future health problems.

Pulmonary rehabilitation can reduce shortness of breath; improve endurance and increase independence and quality of life.

With its recent certification by The Joint Commission for Disease-Specific Care in pulmonary rehabilitation, HealthSouth Bakersfield Rehabilitation Hospital offers the first certified comprehensive rehabilitation program in the state of California for individuals with chronic lung disease. The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ was awarded to the hospital for its compliance with the organization’s national standards for healthcare quality and safety in disease-specific care.

This certification affirms patients will receive the highest quality care needed for managing chronic obstructive and restrictive lung disease such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis or bronchiectasis.
