New to Westlake’s Genesis West Bay Center is a Ventilator Rehabilitation Unit designed for patients needing short-term or continuous ventilator treatment and rehabilitation.

The addition of this health care asset to the community means patients who are leaving the hospital, long-term care facility, or other healthcare facility have a qualified resource close to home.

“Our ventilator team is led by Dr. Basem Haddad M.D. (Board Certified Pulmonologist) and Earl duChossois RRT (Registered Respiratory Therapist) who are focused on taking a multidisciplinary approach to ventilator rehabilitation.” reports Kevin Trockley, Admissions Director West Bay Center.

Offering clinical expertise that includes specially trained nurses and respiratory therapists, patients are offered an individualized care plan that fits within each patient’s respiratory treatment program, including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy as appropriate. West Bay Center will offer 13 private respiratory suites on the new unit.
