What We Do

We strive to provide excellent care in a supportive and respectful environment. Our patients include those with lung and esophageal cancers, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, airway management and end-stage lung disease. Many of our patients require assessment for transplantation.

Our nurses use advanced respiratory assessment skills, as well as a collaborative approach to patient-centred care. Our 24-bed unit focuses on collaboration, clear and open communication, and respect in our interactions with patients and colleagues.

You need to be seen and admitted by a doctor at UHN to become a patient in our inpatient unit.​​
