Christ Hospital Recognized for Respiratory Care for Third Year Running

Under a national program started by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC), Christ Hospital in the Heights has earned Quality Respiratory Care Recognition for the third year in a row. The nod puts the hospital among the 15 percent of American hospitals that have been named a Quality Respiratory Care institution.

AARC’s program was created in 2003 to help patients and families identify those facilities using qualified respiratory therapists to provide respiratory care.

“We are honored that the AARC recognizes us as a Quality Respiratory Care institution,” the hospital’s respiratory therapy manager Michael Mickens says in a statement. “We continue to strive for excellence and to provide the highest quality of care to our patients.”
