Regional Health Center recently earned Quality Respiratory Care Recognition under a national program aimed at helping patients and families make informed decisions about the quality of respiratory care services available in hospitals. Pella Regional is one of only seven hospitals in the state to receive this designation.

The program was started by the American Association for Respiratory Care to help consumers identify facilities using qualified respiratory therapists to provide respiratory care. Hospitals earning the designation ensure patient safety by agreeing to adhere to a strict set of criteria governing their respiratory care services.
