Better Breathing is Your Best Medicine

We’re one of the few community hospitals in the area using two advanced technologies – endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and electromagnetic navigation – for earlier detection of lung disease and lung cancer, and the only hospital in the region to offer low-dose CT scanning. It’s part of our commitment to providing world-class care close to home.
