Hoag Lung Cancer Program

With more than two decades of experience in lung cancer care, Hoag Family Cancer Institute, is a recognized leader in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer with superior patient outcomes that exceed national statistics.

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.
