Why Choose Hoag Lung Cancer Program?
Experience and Outcomes - With more than two decades of experience in lung cancer care, Hoag is a
recognized leader in the
diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer with superior patient outcomes that exceed national statistics. 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.
Survival Rates - 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, Hoag patients have continued to achieve better survival
outcomes than nationally for every stage of lung cancer.
Medical Expertise - With an emphasis on personalized patient-centered care, Hoag’s
multidisciplinary team of lung care experts provides streamlined access to the full array of
advanced lung cancer diagnosis and treatment options tailored to the individual.
The team consists of board certified medical oncologists, radiation oncologists,
thoracic oncologic surgeons, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists and
a dedicated lung cancer nurse navigator – all of whom work together
to consistently achieve superior patient outcomes that rival national figures.
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.
Expert Diagnostic and Treatment Services - Hoag’s commitment to remaining at the forefront of innovative technology
and progressive treatment options enables its dedicated team of lung care
experts to deliver exceptional patient care. From the latest technologies
for accurate screening and diagnosis to the full gamut of state-of-the-art
