Some patients with airway obstructions, severe respiratory distress, or oral cancer are not dependent on a ventilator but need a tracheotomy. A tracheotomy can restore breathing and assist with swallowing, suctioning, and speech. Our team of nurses and speech therapists understand the complexity of tracheotomy care and work closely with patients to restore normal oxygen flow and breathing patterns.

Tracheotomy care can be administered on a short- or long-term basis, depending on the needs of each individual patient and his or her recovery potential and goals.
