Our Expertise

In addition to providing hospital and office based care of patients, our pulmonary and critical physicians provide 24/7 on-site coverage to patients in the critical care units at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.

Our experienced Critical Care specialists are continuously present to ensure a timely response to the ever-changing needs of critically ill patients, their families and other members of the critical care team.

Lung Nodule Program

PeaceHealth's Lung Nodule Program offers expedited and comprehensive care that is convenient and personalized to patients with lung nodules, utilizing the most up-to-date guidelines. Lung nodules are often identified on imaging studies performed for an unrelated reason. Follow up of incidentally detected lung nodules has the potential to diagnose cancer at early stages when they might be curable.
