Respiratory Rehabilitation & Ventilator Unit

Affinity Skilled Living and Rehabilitation Center offers a unique Respiratory Rehabilitation Program with the goal to eliminate the use of a ventilator for those recovering from an acute illness and those on prolonged ventilator support.

We know how concerning it is to discharge from a hospital after a severe illness. Our Respiratory Rehabilitation Program is designed to provide aggressive and progressive treatment that will provide peace of mind to families and residents.

Headed by an experienced team of Pulmonologists, our team includes in-facility Respiratory Therapists 24 hours a day / 7 days a week to care for those recovering from a severe illness that can potentially be weaned from the ventilator.
