As part of the Allis Care Center Cardiopulmonary PATH program, the Ventilator Care Program allows area residents to receive care close to home. Our new ventilator unit for high intensity pulmonary residents demonstrates our commitment to care for individuals with complex needs on both a short-term and long-term care basis.
The ventilator unit includes state-of-the-art equipment for individuals with respiratory failure resulting from injury, neurological disorders or pulmonary disease. Family and friends can participate with our care team during weekly rounding and through social interactions with their loved one.
