Leaving the hospital? If testing determines that you need additional respiratory assistance after being discharged from hospital care, we’ll guide you in the right direction.

  • We work closely with Health-E-Quip to set up home oxygen, CPAP and BIPAP equipment. A Health-E-Quip representative will provide one-on-one instruction to help you use the equipment properly.
