Pulmonary and Critical Care
Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Baylor Clinic provides comprehensive services for patients with illnesses that affect the lungs and breathing.
Our pulmonary and critical care experts offer consultation, diagnostic and therapeutic services for a range of respiratory conditions including lung cancer, chronic obstructive disease, asthma, pulmonary vascular disease, sleep disorders, acute and chronic respiratory failure, and lung infections.
Though founded in 1947, the academic evolution of the program began with the development of a training program in pulmonary diseases in 1968 and critical care training in 1985. The clinicians and scientists in the department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine have practiced out of the new, consolidated Baylor Clinic since 2005. This integrated clinic provides one site for virtually all aspects of ambulatory pulmonary patient care, including a full pulmonary function testing lab, complete radiology services, echocardiography, laboratory and nuclear medicine services.
Today at Baylor Clinic, we integrate clinical expertise, research and education to provide the best care and state-of-the-art technology and services for patients with pulmonary and critical care needs.
Our board-certified, nationally respected physicians have contributed significantly to the fields of pulmonary medicine and critical care, practicing at the major hospitals in the Texas Medical Center. Our physicians are actively involved in ongoing clinical and research work to advance and develop the specialties of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, and they regularly present at national and international scientific meetings related to clinical and basic science investigation in their field. The division has extensive support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The faculty are based at the four primary teaching hospitals: Ben Taub Hospital, The Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, and The Methodist Hospital. The faculty also attend at Kindred Hospital-Houston, a long-term, acute-care facility hospital for patients requiring near-ICU level care.
