“It’s a special time at Woodbine, and the anniversary program reflected on the program’s evolution, and the medical and technological advancements that are so critical when it comes to upholding and improving quality of care,” said Megan Shilling, regional director of market development for Marquis Health Consulting Services. “Marquis is proud to support Woodbine and congratulates the team on this impressive milestone.”

30th Anniversary of Ventilator & Respiratory Care Program

Located at 2729 King St., Woodbine Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. Under the direction of pulmonologist Samir Al-Khouri, M.D., the ventilator and respiratory care program is widely recognized for its longevity and track record in treating patients who are ventilator and tracheostomy dependent, or have debilitating respiratory conditions and disorders.

Its state-of-the-art 46-bed ventilator unit is optimal for vent weaning and management. “We have the only program in northern Virginia that takes ventilator patients right off the acute care setting,” said Al-Khouri. “Our goal is to help patients breathe on their own—when possible—and in all cases, aim to increase their quality of life dramatically.”

Woodbine’s pulmonary patients benefit from 24/7 care provided by respiratory therapists, pulmonologists and specially-trained nurses and caregivers. “Many of our dedicated therapists and nurses have been with us for years,” added Melissa Claudio, Woodbine’s director of respiratory therapy. “We all care deeply about our patients and what we do.”
