St. Alexius Receives Respiratory Service Title

Posted: Updated:

We usually breathe without thinking, but when you can't catch your breath it's scary. The St. Alexius Great Plains Rehabilitation Services can help.  In fact, they're good at it, and were recently named a Quality Respiratory Care Provider.

They said they can breathe a little easier knowing they've earned that title for the 11th year.

Janel Glass is a Respiratory Therapist at St. Alexius Great Plains Rehabilitation Services.
She also has asthma, and a little boy with breathing problems.

She says the title of Quality Respiratory Care Provider proves she and her colleagues are working hard to provide Bismarck with the best care, and it assures her that she'll get help with her little one.

"If his mask is broken, I feel like I can stop in and have that fixed or repaired or replaced as soon as possible," says Glass. "Versus ordering it on the internet or having to go out of state."

They have a large array of equipment, everything  from C-PAPs to nebulizer machines.

When your respiratory equipment isn't enough, St. Alexius has 24-hour on-call services for assistance.

The American Association for Respiratory Care started awarding organizations for their respiratory services in 2003, to give consumers choices in respiratory care.

And St. Alexius has been earning that award since the beginning.

But the workers say they're not letting the award go to their heads.

"Yes, it's cool that we're one of the only ones in the state. We're cool that we're only one of six in the upper Midwest. But again, it's more that we're giving back, our staff are pushing themselves to be the best they can be and be very, very patient focused," says Claude Dockter a coordinator for the Great Plains Rehabilitation.

The therapists say they look forward to earning the title again, next year.

St. Alexius Great Plains Rehabilitation Services is also the only provider in the state to receive the Quality Respiratory Care Provider title.
