Porter Regional Hospital has been named a Screening Center for Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance for its commitment to improving lung cancer detection and care in Northwest Indiana.

Porter Regional Hospital received the certification after the launch of the Lung Cancer Screening Program offered by the hospital’s Cancer Care Services. The program offers a low-dose CT lung cancer screening to patients who meet the National Comprehensive Cancer Network criteria. A low-dose CT scan can help detect lung cancer in its earliest stages, when the disease is most treatable.

The designation by the Lung Cancer Alliance also recognizes Porter Regional Hospital’s Lung Multidisciplinary Team who meets regularly to improve lung cancer patient management and expedite care. The team is comprised of thoracic surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, pulmonologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, hospitalists, family physicians, and clinical staff.

“For years, we had no lung cancer screening. Now, we have an effective tool for early detection to offer patients who are at high risk to develop lung cancer,” said Cardiothoracic Surgeon Walid Khabbaz, M.D., chair of the Lung Cancer Screening Program. “Porter’s CT Lung Cancer Screening Program relies on a multidisciplinary team of physicians, patient navigator and staff to help move patients through the process based on the outcomes of their screenings. We could not do this without this multidisciplinary model of care.”

Lung cancer remains the number one cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, attributing to more deaths per year than breast cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer combined.
