Lung Care

Breathe Easier With Advanced Pulmonary Services

We are pleased to provide extensive, coordinated screening and treatment services for patients with respiratory concerns. These treatment options are available at several of our facilities throughout New Jersey and provide our patients and their families with convenient access to powerful, modern treatments and support from our knowledgeable professionals.

Signs of Lung Disease

Our lungs take in the air, provide our bodies oxygen, and expel everything else in our air that we don't need. When our lungs aren't functioning properly, our activity may be limited and we may become vulnerable to other conditions, and even exposed to catastrophic health effects.

Common signs of lung disease include:

  • Chronic or dry coughing
  • Pronounced fatigue
  • Unexplained shortness of breath
  • Abnormally fast breathing (even at rest)
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Hoarseness/Wheezing
  • Coughing up blood or phlegm
  • Frequent occurrences of bronchitis and pneumonia

Lung Screening Programs

We understand that early detection gives lung disease patients the best possible chance at a full recovery. That is why we offer the Lung Screening Program. Lung cancer is a leading cause of death of both men and women in the United States and, because it is often detected late, it claims many lives that otherwise could have been received treatment.

We offer patients low-dose CT scanning for patients age 55-77 who have a history of smoking. Many commercial insurance plans provide coverage for these screenings, as does Medicare and Medicaid. If you believe you qualify for this screening program, our lung care professionals are ready to hear from you.

Individuals may be eligible for the screening if they meet the following criteria:

  • Age 55 to 77 years old
  • A tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years (Pack Years = Packs Per Day x Years Smoked)
  • A current smoker or former smoker who has quit within the last 15 years, has no symptoms of lung cancer and has not had a chest CT scan within the past 12 months
  • A prescription for a low-dose lung CT is necessary prior to the screening

Request a Lung Cancer Screening Appointment

Lung cancer screening programs are available at several of our hospitals. To find one near you please call 844-226-2376.
