The effects of a lung condition can be debilitating. Pulmonary Rehabilitation has been a lifesaving pathway between inactivity and activity; isolation and socialization; depression and hope; and from being an observer of life to an active participant. Ephrata Community Hospital offers a Pulmonary Rehabilitation program to help you live a fuller life.

Ephrata Community Hospital offers a comprehensive outpatient exercise and educational Pulmonary Rehab program to individuals with breathing difficulties. The main goal of each staff member is to help our clients gain strength and stamina while at the same time learn breathing techniques and lifestyle changes to make activities easier.

The Pulmonary Rehab Center is staffed by Registered Respiratory Therapists who will be there to answer your questions and offer support each step of the way.
