Cardiopulmonary Services

HMH Rehab Services Team

The mission of Howard Memorial Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Services is to provide cost-effective, quality care in a variety of settings to meet the respiratory needs of our patients. Our team believes that education can help patients and their families make important choices to help improve breathing and maximize their quality of life.

Our cardiopulmonary providers also work closely with a patient’s primary care provider to determine the best course of treatment.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding our cardiopulmonary services department, please contact Gayla Beaird, RN, RRT, EMT at 870-845-6941.
