You want to work with leading-edge respiratory technology, using therapist-driven protocols. You want a formal clinical ladder, and specialized training and support. Join the Baptist Health South Florida Respiratory Team where our goal is to continuously improve the services we offer by standardizing our procedures, upgrading our equipment and recruiting the very best.
We’ve created a quality-driven, collegial atmosphere unlike anywhere else. For starters, you’ll find that we strive to maintain some of the best therapist-to-patient ratios in the industry. We do this by working together and communicating effectively and professionally with respect to all. We’re also dedicated to ensuring that you have the time you need to deliver the safest and highest quality patient-centered care. Most important, you’ll play an active role in the decision-making process—your clinical opinion will be valued here.
Our team shares a proactive mindset about respiratory therapy, especially when it comes to preventing infection through effective care delivery. Our proactive treatments show in our elimination of ventilator-acquired pneumonia (VAP) and our very low omitted therapy rate.
We’ll make sure that you have access to all the specialized training and certification opportunities you need to succeed, including:
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Intubation (Adult & Neonatal)
- Neonatal Oscillation/High-Frequency Jet Ventilation
- Nitric Oxide Therapy
- Non-Invasive Ventilation Support
Respiratory Therapists at Baptist Health treat a wide patient population, ranging from neonates to pediatrics to geriatrics. You’ll have opportunities to care for respiratory patients beyond standard cases and possibly gain exposure to patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), sleep disorders or in Palliative Care. Participating in patient transport teams can also add another dimension to your career experience.
