The dedicated vent unit at Pleasant Hill has a professional multi-disciplinary team of skilled health care providers. Our dedicated care team includes a pulmonologist, a respiratory therapist, RNs, LPNs and others. We work with our resident and his or her family to recover maximum possible function for residents needing a ventilator.

A ventilator can literally save a life for anyone with respiratory issues. Long term, though, the best outcomes come when the resident reclaims the ability to breathe independently. Our team of care professionals work 24/7 to provide encouragement and support to help our residents move out of the vent unit and into the next stage of treatment.
