Breathe life into your work with a career in Respiratory Care at C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
Respiratory Care Practitioners are vital members of the health care team. Widely respected for their expertise in patient care and state-of-the-art technology, Mott RCPs provide patient assessments and education, deliver inhaled medications, and manage mechanical ventilation for infants and children with complex cardiopulmonary illnesses.
Throughout Mott Hospital, you will find RCPs in a variety of settings, including three intensive care units (the Neonatal ICU, the Pediatric Cardiothoracic Unit, and the Pediatric ICU), the Stable Ventilator Unit, general care floors, the Pediatric Pulmonary Function Lab, in the operating room, and in the pediatric emergency department. On the ground or in the air, Mott RCPs care for critically ill infants and children as members of the Survival Flight pediatric transport team.
Members of the Mott Respiratory Care department have been instrumental in the development and ongoing success of both the Pediatric Home Ventilator Program (one of the nations’ largest) and Trail’s Edge Camp for Ventilator Dependent Children. Trail’s Edge enables kids who were previously thought to be too medically fragile to attend camp, to experience the childhood joys of nature, friendships, practical jokes, and summer camp.
As part of the University of Michigan Health System, Mott Hospital offers an unmatched environment for continuing education, research, and advancement at one of the nation’s leading academic centers.
