Wheeling Hospital recently announced the creation of its Lung Nodule Evaluation Center, designed to provide a comprehensive team approach to managing patients’ lung abnormalities.
The center, the first of its kind in the region, will benefit patients and their family physicians by providing a central location to refer cases. There, a team of pulmonologists, radiologists, chest surgeons and oncologists will evaluate the patient, the medical records and all lung images to coordinate a multidisciplinary approach toward best evaluation of the nodule.
“The new center is yet another example of our commitment of helping area residents find specialized care close to their homes. There is now no need to leave the area for this type of comprehensive team approach to dealing with lung nodules,” said Wheeling Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ron Violi.
