With Westmoreland County exceeding the state and national incidence rate for lung cancer, coordinating lung and pulmonary services becomes a priority for our population.
To combat that rate, Excela Health has formed the Advanced Lung Center under the direction of Michael F. Szwerc, MD, board certified general and thoracic surgeon. The Excela Advanced Lung Center offers you a means of ruling out or detecting lung cancer earlier, when successful strategies come into play.
Known as the “mammogram” of lung cancer testing, the low dose CT scan aids in finding cancer sooner and with early detection generally, more treatment options may be available.
Excela Advanced Lung Center locations:
Mountain View Medical Park, 200 Village Drive, Greensburg, Pa. 15601
Excela Square at Norwin, 8775 Norwin Avenue, Suite B, North Huntingdon, Pa. 15642
