    Rae Griffin, BHS RRT, Pulmonary Rehab Department Coordinator

    “My name is Rae Griffin. I graduated from University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri with my Bachelors of Health Sciences in Respiratory Therapy. I have been working as a Registered Respiratory Therapist since 2013. I have had the opportunity to work in different facilities offering a wide range of experience. Over the past several years, I have been able to work in critical care settings from neonatal to adults, emergency services, outpatient testing, and pulmonary rehab. I enjoy all of what I have experienced, but working in a smaller facility, such as MCHC, I am able to work with both the inpatient and outpatient respiratory population.”
