Respiratory Therapy and Home Medical Equipment Services

Children's Hospital Home Care professionals provide clinical respiratory therapy services, respiratory equipment services and home medical equipment to patients in their homes. Our team of skilled respiratory care practitioners and delivery equipment technicians assess, deliver and set up equipment and train patients and caregivers to properly use the equipment.
