I believe the respiratory therapists within our hospital are very well-respected, and we tend to be valued as a team member when coming to patient care. We work very well with our multi-disciplinary staffing to make sure we come up with the best care for our patients, and our opinions actually matter and they're valued. And you would see that a lot of our physicians and nurses will come to us for recommendations, and we work very well for an overall plan. So this is something that's great for our community.
