The 54-bed specialized respiratory care unit is being operated in partnership with Antelope Valley Hospital to relieve some of the burden faced by the region's healthcare professionals. The hospital's opening comes just nine days after the organization began accepting patients at a similar respiratory care unit in western North Carolina.
