Career & Job Outlook 

Are you interested in…

  • a career for life, one that you can enhance and build upon. . .
  • good pay and benefits.

RESPIRATORY CARE TECHNOLOGY could be for you!

Through 2014, Ohio Job Workforce projects a 19% increase in the number of Respiratory Therapists.

The current employment projections by the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2006-2016 state that Respiratory job opportunities are expected to increase nationally by 23%!

  • WHY? There is a substantial growth of the middle-aged and elderly population, a development that will heighten the incidence of cardiopulmonary disease.
  • Another reason for interest in the respiratory profession is attributed to a current shortage of therapists and that shortage is expected to grow!

According to Salary.com, the annual salary range in Cleveland for Respiratory Therapists is listed between $51,000 - $59,000 (www.salary.com).

Although hospitals will continue to employ the vast majority of therapists, a growing number of therapists can expect to work outside of hospitals under contract to home health agencies and physician offices.
