Breathe Easier with Respiratory Care at North Oaks

The simple act of breathing often goes unnoticed unless you have trouble doing so. North Oaks Respiratory Services helps patients manage conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), fibrosis and emphysema.

Our therapists work in the critical care areas of the hospital, including the Adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Emergency Department (ED).
