Griffin Hospital Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center
The American College of Radiology (ACR) designated Griffin Hospital as a Lung Cancer Screening Center, an elite distinction that requires accreditation by the ACR in computed tomography in the chest module and a rigorous assessment of lung cancer screening protocol and infrastructure. Additionally, Lung Cancer Screening Centers must provide follow-up patient care, such as counseling and smoking cessation programs. “When we started our Low-Dose Lung Cancer Screening Program two years ago, we wanted to provide the community with exceptional expertise, technology and patient care together to give individuals the best chance possible in finding and fighting lung cancer,” said Margaret Deegan, vice president of Ambulatory Services at Griffin Hospital. “We’re very honored and proud to receive this designation because it shows we are delivering on this mission.”
