MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., May 25, 2021 — Building on its commitment to providing the region’s most comprehensive range of specialty care offerings, Laurel Brook Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Mount Laurel this spring introduced a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. The new initiative at the 220-bed skilled nursing facility is under the leadership of pulmonologist John Bermingham, DO, FCCP, with Pulmonary and Sleep Associates of New Jersey.
Board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary disease and critical care medicine, Dr. Bermingham has practiced for more than 20 years and is frequently named among South Jersey’s “Top Doctors.” He is affiliated with multiple area hospitals.
Laurel Brook’s Pulmonary Rehab Program aims to reduce pulmonary symptoms, decrease disability, increase participation in physical and social activities, and promote independence and quality of life. It caters to the individual who has subacute rehab and medical needs related to an acute exacerbation or new onset of pulmonary disease. Laurel Brook respiratory patients benefit from a full-time respiratory therapist on staff and 24/7 access to lab and radiology services, with an extensive range of therapy services available seven days per week.
Laurel Brook has worked closely with Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility, to partner with South Jersey’s leading medical providers. The result is a full range of specialty care offerings to meet area healthcare needs. Programs include neuro recovery, chronic kidney disease management with onsite hemodialysis, cardiac rehab, and others. The facility features a state-of-the-art therapy gym with progressive rehab equipment.
“Laurel Brook’s comprehensive range of specialized programs is one of a kind in South Jersey,” said Marquis’ Jennifer Hertzog, vice president of marketing and business development, Mid Atlantic. “The facility is pleased to add pulmonary rehab to its offerings, with Dr. Bermingham and his colleagues at Pulmonary and Sleep Associates directing the initiative. They will work closely with Laurel Brook’s talented clinical team to enable the best possible outcome for respiratory patients.”
