Transitional Pulmonology bridges the gap between hospital-based care, skilled nursing communities, assisted living, and independent living.  Pulmonary Transitional Care is based on a comprehensive care plan,  developed in collaboration between our providers and your clinical team. 

At Alteas Health, we pride ourselves on respecting the relationship residents have with their primary Pulmonologist. We work hard to have open communication with residents, family members, and caregivers. 

At Alteas Health, continuity of care is our priority.
