Type

Full Time

We are a growing respiratory company specializing in treating the most challenging respiratory patients inside the home by pairing the best in class technology & equipment with the clinical care of a full-time Respiratory Therapist. Our mission is to educate, nurture, and inspire our patients to lead better lives.

Our Disease Management program has earned national attention, making us the number one independent ventilation provider in the United States. In recent random studies of our patient population, we have shown a 30-day COPD re-admission rate of 5.7% compared to the industry average of 20-22%*. Over 93% of our patients share that they actually “Breathe Better” on our treatment program!

While our Respiratory Therapists provide the highest level of clinical care and support for our patients, our Clinical Sales Representatives work in conjunction with healthcare decision-makers to ensure a comfortable transition for the patient from the hospital to their home. This achieves better management of the length of stay and re-admission rates to hospitals, which reduces costs for patients and brings personalized clinical care directly to the patient from the comfort of their own home.

We are currently experiencing explosive growth throughout the country! We are actively seeking dynamic individuals to join our VieMed family. If you are self-motivated, energetic, and career-minded, Viemed could be the company for you!
