Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory Therapy


Respiratory therapists are an integral part of UMC Health System’s health care team. Our registered respiratory care practitioners work with patients to assess respiratory issues, and they manage respiratory equipment. They provide care to patients— 24 hours a day, 365 days a year—who require treatment or diagnosis on health issues affecting the cardiopulmonary system.

Our respiratory therapists implement care to help manage a wide range of breathing problems and are credentialed by the National Board of Respiratory Care and licensed by the Texas Medical Board.
