Breathing difficulties are common in patients with pulmonary diseases and/or neurological disorders, as well as those who have suffered traumatic injuries. Lorien's specialized ventilator care units provide respiratory support for patients who are unable to breathe on their own. Through a series of treatments, we aim to provide the appropriate level of therapy, to make the patient comfortable, and to gradually reduce their dependency on the equipment. 

As one of the first skilled nursing facilities in Maryland to offer ventilator services, Lorien is known as a leader in the delivery of post-acute respiratory care. Our Columbia and Mt. Airy locations both feature board-certified respiratory therapists, pulmonologists, credentialed respiratory care practitioners, and nurses.
