Welcome to the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep & Allergy

We pride ourselves on our commitment to innovative basic and clinical research, excellent patient care, and quality education.

Our division directs the medical intensive care unit at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System. We provide consultative services to the cardiac intensive care unit, stem cell and solid organ transplantation unit, and the neurosurgical intensive care unit, as well as to inpatients and outpatients on all adult services. In addition to our involvement within the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System, we operate several outpatient pulmonary, allergy, and sleep clinics on the UIC campus. We treat both common and unusual illnesses, and our team of faculty members are actively involved in research concerning asthma, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, scleroderma-related lung disease, sleep apnea, tuberculosis and other mycobacterial diseases.

Our division recently added a Sleep Fellowship program. Both the Pulmonary and Critical Care and Sleep fellows are an integral part of all of the division’s many operations. As a division, we are passionate about respiratory and sleep-related issues, and we strive to foster an environment of learning and research partnered with an exceptional, compassionate approach toward our patients.

The  University of Illinois Cancer Center, in joint efforts with
A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation, will be hosting an
inaugural 5K run/walk to raise lung cancer awareness on
May 21
st, 2016, in Chicago. It is our hope that the event
will not only inform the public about lung cancer, we also
hope that it will empower the surrounding communities
about their resources for treatment and prevention.
In doing so, we hope to increase the utilization of our
services that UICC offers as well as improve the
communities’ overall health.
Together, we could beat lung cancer!
