The TriHealth Lung Program is committed to improving lung cancer survival in our community through timely screening and personalized treatment plans. The program focuses on various aspects of lung and pulmonary care including smoking cessation, lung screening and state-of-the-art treatment options, for those patients who need it.
Lung Cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in men and women. This is because lung cancer symptoms don’t appear until the cancer is very advanced. A lung cancer screening for current and former smokers can find cancer much sooner. TriHealth’s Lung Screening Program provides low dose CT scans for earlier detection of lung cancer.

TriHealth has received designation as a Care Continuum Center of Excellence by the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer (GO2 Foundation). The designation recognizes commitment to improving outcomes for those diagnosed with lung cancer by providing patient-focused and coordinated multidisciplinary care. GO2 Foundation has formed the Care Continuum Centers of Excellence program to enable patient access to standard of care lung cancer screening, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship in their local community.
The Care Continuum Centers of Excellence (CCCOE) program recognizes community hospitals that meet rigorous qualifying criteria that demonstrate collaborative leadership across the lung cancer care continuum. Meeting the CCCOE criteria puts member hospitals on par with leading academic and research institutions and provides patients with access to the latest innovations not typically found in community hospitals. The CCCOE approach results in patients receiving compassionate and timely care, as well as treatment options that improve survivorship.
TriHealth’s Lung Nodule Program gives patients and physicians a way to evaluate and decide what to do about a lung nodule. As a part of this program, physician experts and required testing come together in one location for patient ease. Each patient receives a complete evaluation by a physician to determine the best course of action. To learn more about TriHealth’s Lung Nodule Program, click here.
As part of our multidisciplinary, personalized approach to medicine, every week, TriHealth’s Lung Program brings together doctors from many specialties to discuss individual care plans for our most critical patients. Each patient receives their own plan for healing, whether the plan includes immunotherapy, clinical trials or surgery. Options for diagnosis and care include the most advanced technologies, including state-of-the-art diagnostic platforms like CT-guided biopsy, bronchoscopy and the region’s only Ion Robot.
