Progressive Pulmonary Care Ventilator Management
FutureCare is the largest provider of skilled ventilator services in Maryland
For over 20 years FutureCare has been recognized as a leader in Maryland for the development and delivery of specialized Progressive Pulmonary Care programs. This expertise enables us to provide both short-term ventilator weaning services, as well as long-term ventilator and tracheostomy management. Our interdisciplinary team focuses on improving functional ability and overall quality of life for our patients.
Our respiratory therapists work directly for FutureCare (not an outside agency) which benefits you, or your loved one with better continuity of care.
Ventilator weaning and management
Short-term management – When appropriate, we actively wean residents from the ventilator and the tracheostomy tube.
Long-term management – For residents with diagnoses that make ventilator dependency a part of their lives, we offer extended ventilator management services combined with traditional long term care services.

“The staff on the progressive pulmonary care unit were wonderful! My mom was on a ventilator when she came to Irvington, and the respiratory therapists and nurses made her feel comfortable and welcome from the moment she was admitted. The staff did a great job of explaining the ventilator to us as well, and even got mom off of the vent during the day! Thank you for taking such great care of our mom!”
