Respiratory Care Week (Oct. 24-30)

This week, respiratory therapists at Sierra View Medical Center and all across the U.S., are recognized for the important contributions they make to the nation’s health care system. If anyone has resilience, it's our respiratory therapists. This team’s collaboration with health care colleagues and their commitment and dedication to patients and the community through this pandemic has been inspiring.

As the key clinicians responsible for delivering hands on care to those with asthma, COPD, and other chronic and acute respiratory conditions, as well as critically ill patients on mechanical ventilation in the ICU, respiratory therapists work closely with physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals to ensure patients receive safe and effective care. National Respiratory Care Week is the perfect time to thank our Respiratory Care team for the vital role they play at SVMC. The staff at Sierra View are forever thankful for the work respiratory therapists do every day and for the commitment to the community, you serve!
