The Winchester Chest Clinic’s Post-COVID-19 Recovery Program offers pulmonary-focused, multidisciplinary evaluation and care for patients recovering from COVID-19. We partner with teams taking care of patients in the hospital, as well as community providers to identify patients who have persistent symptoms or appear at risk of developing post-COVID-19 complications.
We accept the following patients:
- Those who required hospitalization for treatment of COVID-19, including but not restricted to those requiring ICU admission
- Those who did not require hospitalization but have continued to experience respiratory symptoms for more than six weeks following original infection
- Those with pre-existing, underlying lung disease who had COVID-19 of any severity
While most patients hospitalized with COVID-19 do well, it may be a matter of months, not weeks, for many to feel fully recovered. Even for patients who had a mild form of disease or had no significant pre-existing respiratory issues, it is not unusual for significant difficulty or labored breathing and fatigue to linger well beyond acute illness.
