Geisinger Holy Spirit Now Offering Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program
CAMP HILL – Geisinger Holy Spirit now offers a pulmonary rehabilitation program for patients with chronic lung diseases.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is an exercise and symptom management program that helps to improve the quality of life for those living with chronic lung conditions. Participation can be beneficial for those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, and a variety of other lung-related conditions.
“Pulmonary rehab is intended to be an open, friendly, supportive atmosphere where a patient can learn about their disease and how to manage it,” said Diana Prowell, lead therapist. “This is accomplished through interaction and education with both healthcare professionals and other patients suffering from similar diseases and symptoms.”
Geisinger Holy Spirit’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is located within the hospital, 503 N. 21st St., Camp Hill. Patients must have a physician referral. For more information, call 717-972-4545.
