The Respiratory Care Department at Peninsula Regional Medical Center is an integral part of the health care team that serves our community.
The department features more than fifty Respiratory Care practitioners who have been trained to perform assessments, and who treat, manage, control, educate and care for patients with pulmonary problems.
Working with and under the direction of pulmonologists, they provide twenty-four hour coverage, offering numerous therapies and procedures for the treatment and management of patients with respiratory illnesses.
Respiratory Care is also a vital part of the Rapid Response Team. A Rapid Response Team is a set of clinicians who bring critical care expertise to the patient bedside or wherever it is needed.
