Lung & Respiratory Care

Also known as Pulmonology

Improving your lung health and helping you breathe easier

Lung and Respiratory Care at Winchester Hospital

When it's hard to breathe, it's hard to do the things you enjoy. Even everyday tasks like climbing the stairs or walking from the parking lot into a store can be difficult. Our pulmonology (lung care) team can help change that. We make it easier for you to breathe so you can have a better quality of life.

Our pulmonologists have vast experience treating chronic lung conditions, as well as those that appear suddenly. Our experts offer diagnosis and treatment that will help you find relief.

Our services include interventional pulmonology. It involves minimally invasive procedures that allow you to recover more quickly. We also offer a Pulmonology Rehabilitation Program.

Your heart and your lungs are closely connected, and the health of one of these organs can have a major impact on the other. At Winchester Hospital, we provide expert care for both.
