About us

Our staff is a dedicated group of licensed respiratory care practitioners who specialize in treatment and diagnostic testing of critical and acute care patients in the hospital and outpatient testing areas. Our patients are provided with state-of-the-art extracorporeal and mechanical ventilation support and a variety of specialized respiratory treatments and therapies.


We work to provide respiratory care of the highest quality to our patients in need of pulmonary diagnosis and treatment, while promoting patient safety, education and research at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center.


We will promote the practice and profession of respiratory therapy as we incorporate an interdisciplinary approach to the delivery of care.

We will develop ourselves and others to further education and training in the field of respiratory therapy.

We will be responsible and prudent stewards of the resources given to us in order to support the mission, vision and values of the larger VCU Medical Center.
