Franciscan St. Francis Health specializes in the advanced diagnosis and treatment of breathing disorders and lung diseases, from asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to lung cancer, interstitial lung disease and acute lung injuries.
We treat patients with conditions that may require just an office consultation to patients with early and advanced stage lung cancer and critical illnesses who require treatment. We offer pulmonary function tests, bronchoscopy, advanced interventional pulmonology, pulmonary rehabilitation, and other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, as well as medical therapy and minimally invasive surgery. Services are provided in both outpatient and inpatient settings.
Why choose us for lung care?
Early Detection of Lung Cancer
The Interventional Pulmonology program at Franciscan St. Francis Health manages patients with complex airway issues, including lung cancer, severe asthma and pleural diseases. Our physicians use techniques that are less invasive and an alternative to traditional surgical procedures.
Aspire Tobacco-Free Program
Our unique program provides a non-judgmental approach to help you quit smoking and break free of tobacco by confronting both the habit and the addiction.
$49 Lung Scan
Franciscan St. Francis Health was the first hospital in Indiana and one of the first in the nation to offer a lung CT screening program to detect lung cancer earlier. The lung scan is simple and non-invasive.
Adult Asthma Program
The Franciscan St. Francis Health Adult Asthma Program cares for patients with severe persistent asthma that is not well controlled with traditional medications. Our physicians are experts in the use of advanced treatments like Bronchial Thermoplasty.
Breathe Better Indy
Franciscan St. Francis Health has joined forces with the American Lung Association and Emmis Communications to improve lung health in central Indiana.
