Critical Care and Post-Acute Care
Comprehensive Pulmonary Critical Care
At Northwest Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine, every one of our skilled providers is highly trained in critical care. With our board certified doctors and nurse practitioners working together to serve our hospitalized patients, we are able to provide prompt, knowledgeable care when it’s most needed.
We see inpatient pulmonary and critical care consults during the patient's hospital stay and then may continue to follow up with them as an outpatient either in the office or at one of the several long-term care facilities in the area, post discharge.
Northwest Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine provides post-acute transition care following a hospital discharge when our patients go home or to rehab facilities and skilled nursing facilities, including Alden Estates of Barrington, Alden of Poplar Creek, and Alden Terrance of McHenry. We make rounds multiple times per week at these facilities.
By following up with patients and managing their illness within these facilities and also at home, we can improve patient care, wean pulmonary patients off the ventilator, reduce hospital admission rates, and increase patient satisfaction.
