The Franciscan St. Francis Health Lung Cancer Center of Excellence focuses on earlier diagnosis for lung cancer by educating the community about the signs and symptoms. Once a patient is diagnosed, our experienced medical team of board-certified pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, interventional pulmonologists and oncologists works in partnership to determine the best treatment options, which may include:
- SuperDimension iLogic Navigational Bronchoscopy
- Radiation therapy, including Stereotactic Radiation Therapy (SRT)
- Minimally invasive da Vinci robotic surgery
- Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS)
- Interventional pulmonology procedures, including endobronchial ultrasound, thorascopy, bronchial stenting and cryotherapy
- Research and clinical trials
$99 Lung CT Screening
The key to beating lung cancer is to find it early. Once symptoms occur, the cancer is typically late stage and treatment options are limited. Our Lung CT screening program can help find lung cancer earlier. The screening is safe, simple and non-invasive.
Who is a Lung Scan recommended for?
Lung CT Screening is recommended for current or former smokers who are:

The $99 screening package includes:
- Lung CT scan evaluated by a radiologist

Our patient-centered lung clinic streamlines the evaluation and treatment process for patients with a diagnosis of lung cancer. In one visit, and in one convenient location, patients see all their specialists - pulmonology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgery and others. A customized treatment plan is created and started right away.
A key member of the multidisciplinary team is the Lung Cancer Nurse Navigator, a specially trained, experienced cancer nurse who guides patients and family members through their cancer journey. The navigator serves as the central “hub” of communication among all members of a patient’s medical team. The navigator can be an advocate for you and your family members - interpreting your care plan, ensuring continuity of care, expediting diagnostic tests and results, offering practical advice and assistance, and answering questions.
