Hoag Lung Cancer Program
Superior Patient Outcomes
Being a high-volume cancer center enables the lung care team at Hoag to achieve a technical skill level not all facilities can match. Hoag was also awarded a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) accreditation from the Surgical Review Corporation, and was chosen as a national mentorship site for training physicians and other hospitals on new procedures and techniques.
Survival Rates Higher than National Average
Hoag’s five-year relative survival rate for lung cancer is better than the national figure. Hoag’s survival rates have steadily improved over the years, while there has been very little improvement in national figures. In fact, our patients have continued to achieve better survival outcomes for every stage of lung cancer.
Hoag Lung Cancer Program is pleased to offer patients with an more advanced therapeutic approach to treating their lung cancer utilizing precision medicine, or genomic testing.

Hoag Family Cancer Institute provides not only centralized care and enhanced patient comfort and safety, but it also offers the latest leading-edge technologies for accurately evaluating and treating lung cancer, as well as an extensive Complementary Care Program to educate and support patients and their families.
Lung Cancer Screening Program
Hoag was an early adopter to providing an early detection program for lung cancer, seeing the value in utilizing low-dose CT scanning for the detection of even the smallest lung modules. Today, lung cancer screening has also been adopted by reputable health organizations and some private insurances and Medicare now cover the cost.
