Led by a Certified Pulmonary Disease Specialist who conducts weekly rounds, Autumn Lake Healthcare at New Britain’s trailblazing Pulmonary Program is highly effective in reducing the hospital readmission rate of patients with CHF & COPD by an average of 80% within the first 30 days of hospital discharge.

The facility’s expert nursing and therapy staff, which includes a full-time respiratory therapist, is extensively trained and well-equipped to treat high acuity pulmonary patients and individuals with chronic breathing conditions, as well as lung and breathing related diseases that include emphysema, COPD, pneumonia and asthma. The program includes tracheostomy care, weaning, decannulation, BiPAP, CPAP and trilogy.
