Respiratory Therapist attending to a baby

Respiratory Care

The Pediatric Respiratory Care team at Golisano Children’s Hospital consists of highly trained therapists working closely with physicians, nurses, and other specialists to provide the highest level of care to patients and their families.

We provide care for a full range of patients, from neonates to adolescents, treating multiple disease processes including asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital heart and lung disease, RSV and others.

Here When You Need Us

When a child in our hospital experiences breathing difficulties due to an injury, surgical procedure or medical condition, we are here to help. Children who are cared for at Golisano Children’s’ Hospital get the extra advantage of having our respiratory experts available to them around the clock. Our respiratory care staff works with departments throughout the hospital and are available whenever patients experience breathing difficulties.

Not only does this level of care reduce stress for our children, it also greatly improves outcomes that help them recover.
