Why IU Health for Pulmonary & Respiratory Care
Along with personalized care, IU Health is on the forefront of developing new innovations and technologies. Our partnership with the IU School of Medicine allows faster access to the latest treatment options.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research
CF is one of the most common chronic lung diseases in children, but some people are first diagnosed as adults. We are the only center in Indiana that is conducting research on cystic fibrosis in adults. You benefit from the latest and most advanced treatments.
Sleep Apnea Education
IU Health has Sleep Apnea Education Centers across Indiana, including Avon, Carmel, Muncie, and more. Whether you’re wondering, “What are the warning signs of sleep apnea?” or have questions about CPAP supplies, we have you covered.
Quality Respiratory Care Recognition
IU Health is among approximately ten percent of hospitals in the U.S. to receive the Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR). The program aims to help you and your family make informed decisions about your respiratory care. Hospitals earning the QRCR assure patient safety by agreeing to adhere to a strict set of criteria.
Fully funded research
We have received more than $3 million in research funding in the areas of COPD, lung transplant, pulmonary fibrosis, asthma, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer, lung host defense, HIV infection, and the respiratory microbiome.
What do these accolades mean for you when you seek pulmonary care? They mean that you are always getting the best and latest care available.
