Survivors of COVID-19 often experience persistent weakness and respiratory symptoms. At Monmouth Medical Center, our comprehensive Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program offers a post-COVID recovery program that is safe and effective.

Our goal is to help people recover more fully from the coronavirus disease by improving breathing and lung function.

When Breathing Does Not Come Easily

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Monmouth Medical Center is designed for individuals living with pulmonary disease. Through exercise and education, participants can become more active and independent. Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is open to individuals who have either obstructive or restrictive pulmonary disease. Individuals should consult with their physician about a referral.

Providing a Personalized Exercise Regimen

Our highly specialized staff work closely with post-COVID patients in developing exercise programs to meet their needs. Exercise regimens are conducted under the supervision of a registered nurse, a respiratory therapist and an exercise physiologist. Each participant’s heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation are monitored to measure the body’s response to exercise.

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is a part of The Joel Opatut Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center at Monmouth Medical Center, the first program in Monmouth County certified for both cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
