CANCER CARE

SwedishAmerican Lung Cancer Center

Lung cancer is the second-most-common cancer in both men and women. It often goes undetected until the cancer has reached an advanced stage, which can affect survival.

SwedishAmerican was among the nation's first hospitals to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for Lung Cancer.

At SwedishAmerican, we offer lung cancer patients a team approach to their care. A team of specialists from thoracic surgery, medical and radiation oncology, pulmonary medicine, radiology, and pathology come together to evaluate patients with known or suspected lung tumors in a timely and coordinated manner. A registered nurse serves as a navigator, assisting the patient with education, support and coordination of services throughout their diagnosis and treatment.

The Multidisciplinary Lung Cancer Center offers patients:

  • Evaluation by a team of specialists

  • Coordinated treatment decisions by the team of specialists

  • Family-centered discussion of the team's recommendations

  • Access to state-of-the-art standard and investigational therapies

  • The opportunity to meet with a dietitian and/or social worker to discuss concerns or special needs

  • Comprehensive patient education materials

  • Team approach with your referring physician
