Striving for a Lung Cancer-free Community

From prevention to treatment

At Genesis HealthCare System, we combine proven methods with innovative technology to treat lung cancer. From prevention to early diagnosis to treatment, our team will care for you every step of the way.

Stop smoking with our help

The best treatment for lung cancer is prevention. If you have never smoked or vaped, fantastic. However, if you currently smoke or vape, it is never too late to stop. In fact, within minutes of quitting, your body will start to repair parts of itself, and you reduce your odds of getting lung cancer.

If you smoke or vape, talk to your doctor, and he or she can provide a referral to our lung specialists who can provide counseling and resources to get you to a smoke-free life.

Find lung cancer early and improve your odds of living longer

A low-dose CT scan is painless, involves no medication or needles and only takes about one minute. However, studies have shown that one minute can lower the risk of dying from lung cancer by 20% if you are considered high-risk. The low-dose CT scan is effective because it can identify potential lung cancer in the earliest stages of the disease when it is more treatable.

If you meet the following criteria, talk to your doctor because you may qualify for a free low-dose CT scan through your health insurance. Criteria for a potentially free low-dose CT scan includes:

  • 55-77 years old

  • Current smoker with a 30 plus pack-a-year history or quit smoking in the last 15 years

  • No signs or symptoms of lung cancer

Innovation to diagnose lung cancer earlier and more accurately

In 2020, we became the second hospital in Ohio to offer the minimally invasive Monarch Robotic-assisted Bronchoscopy. This revolutionary equipment can reach and diagnose potential lung cancer in areas of the lungs that were previously unreachable without surgery.
