The Hospitalist Service directs medical care in the PPCU(Progressive Pulmonary Care Unit) a 9-bed unit that provides intensive nursing, respiratory and rehabilitative care for patients who require long term mechanical ventilation (LTMV) or patients with primary severe pulmonary disease who need close monitoring and rehabilitation. We work together with the Pulmonary Division in a collaborative effort to care for these complicated patients along with Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Nutrition Support, Social Work and Case Coordination. 

Referrals are from current Pulmonary Division patients or ICU inpatients only.
