Assisted Breathing Unit (ABU)

A Masonic Pathways Ventilator Program

Supported by Allevant
and developed by Mayo Clinic & Select Medical

The goal of the all new Masonic Pathways Assisted Breathing Program is to improve the quality of life of our patients, by providing the least restrictive and most cost effective environment possible. For many, this could include weaning from a ventilator. When total “liberation” is not possible, attaining a greater degree of independence has been shown to make a world of difference.

Masonic Pathways is known for providing highly skilled care in a patient-centered environment and the Assisted Breathing Program is no exception.

Upon admission, we’ll assess your needs and develop a care plan that is specific to those needs. For patients to achieve their highest potential, they and family members are encouraged to participate in the evolving care plan.

Rated 5-Star, the Medicare Compare top rating, Masonic Pathways is conveniently located in the center of the state, adjacent to MidMichigan Health, making emergency care and specialty services readily available.

From our beautiful campus and state-of-the-art medical facilities to the trusted friendships between staff, patients and residents, you’ll soon discover that our legacy of caring is . . . the secret to exceptional living.

Whether you or a loved one are suffering from a chronic illness or have recently
experienced a traumatic injury that has resulted in ventilator dependency,
Masonic Pathways is here to support you.
