Commission on Cancer Accreditation

We’ve been accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) through the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). This accreditation was obtained through an extensive evaluation and ensures a commitment to quality care, the use of proper infrastructure and improved patient outcomes.

Our Lung Cancer Screening Program is designed to catch cancer in its earliest stages for your best chance at a full recovery. Request a screening to receive a low-dose chest CT scan to look for lung cancer signs, a consultation with a nurse practitioner and a comprehensive lung health plan. 

Preventive lung cancer screenings are especially important if you are at high risk for lung cancer, meaning you:

  • Are between the ages of 50 and 77*
  • Currently smoke or quit smoking within the last 15 years
  • Have a 20-pack-year smoking history (one pack per day for 20 years or two packs per day for 10 years) 
  • If you're at high risk, don't wait for symptoms to start. Schedule your low-dose CT scan with our team today. 

*Not all insurance providers follow the same screening guidelines for coverage, but our team can help you understand when to get screened.

Advanced Treatment Options for You

Our specialists develop treatment plans that consider your diagnosis, medical history, current health and the available therapies. From traditional treatments like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to alternative therapies and clinical trials, your team will build a plan that incorporates some of the most advanced research and procedures.

Using sophisticated radiation technology, we can target tumors with amazing precision, reducing pain and leaving healthy tissue untouched. Radiation therapy targets specific areas of the body, shrinking tumors and killing cancer cells by damaging their DNA.

Our team works closely with leading researchers to develop new therapies and personalized treatments. We provide several types of targeted therapies that precisely identify and eliminate cancer cells, like hormone therapy and immunotherapy.

Molecular tumor testing is key to understanding the changes in your lung tumor, which can help your cancer care team decide which treatments will be most effective for you.
