Location(s): Onaga, Holton

Breathing is something everyone does - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – usually without giving it a second thought. However, people who live with respiratory conditions think about it all the time. So do we.

Our healthcare professionals at Community HealthCare System provide respiratory care, education and services by Registered and/or Certified Respiratory Therapists that are specially trained to a wide array of patient clientele.

Birth defects

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Chronic bronchitis

Cystic fibrosis


Heart attacks

Lung cancer

Shortness of breath during exercise
