Pulmonary rehabilitation is an individually-supervised program for people experiencing lung problems. The program is designed to help patients decrease the symptoms of their disease or condition. Research has shown that regular participation in a pulmonary rehabilitation program decreases the number and length of hospital stays.
The Bayshore Medical Center program focuses on endurance and strength training, and is beneficial for people with conditions including:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Our monitored, supervised rehabilitation program provides exercise and education about a variety of topics, including:
