Cardiopulmonary

The Columbus Community Hospital Cardiopulmonary Services include Respiratory Therapy and EKG. The Cardiopulmonary staff performs a wide variety of diagnostic tests to evaluate and treat heart and lung disease. Diagnostic tests are performed on inpatients as well as outpatients.

Our Respiratory Therapy services help patients prevent, reduce or manage breathing problems, focusing on asthma and smoking cessation. We also provide home oxygen therapy. The Cardiopulmonary Services are located on the third floor of the hospital. Our hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. A physician referral is needed for any tests or services provided by the Cardiopulmonary staff.
