Susan has 29 years of experience in respiratory care and clinical services.  Prior to founding Pediatric Home Service, I held sales and director positions with home health care organizations, including Glasrock Home Health Care, Travenol Home Respiratory, and Waconia Ridgeview Hospital.  Starting with the recognition that there was a need for high-tech pediatric homecare, I built an organization dedicated to meeting that need and PHS opened its doors in 1990 to provide home medical equipment for children who otherwise would remain hospitalized. The original focus of the business, and a crucial aspect still today, was children with high-tech respiratory needs such as ventilator support, oxygen needs, tracheostomy devices and apnea monitors. This independent home care company recognized the differing needs of the infant, child and adolescent in comparison to adults and to achieve the management of this young population, a highly trained clinical team was formulated.
