Excela Health Welcomes New Pulmonologist, Enhancing Treatment of Lung Disease, Sleep Disorders

GREENSBURG, September 21, 2020 … Excela Health is expanding expertise in pulmonary critical care and sleep medicine with the addition of Euhan John Lee, MD, to its growing team of specialists in the Excela Health Medical Group. Dr. Lee brings considerable experience in this complex field to the residents of Westmoreland County, having trained and practiced within both the UPMC and Allegheny Health Network systems.

His expertise spans both inpatient and outpatient care, having provided consultation within various intensive care units, overseen hospital-based sleep laboratories as well as offered clinic services to patients with lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, and sleep disorders.

A Harvard University graduate, Dr. Lee received his medical degree from UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School, now part of Rutgers, where he participated in various fellowships including an international experience with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Sub-Saharan Africa. He completed his residency training at UPMC, distinguishing himself as a chief medical resident. Following graduation, he remained in Pittsburgh for fellowships in both pulmonary and critical care medicine and sleep medicine for which he holds certifications by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Featured in two editions of Egan’s Fundamentals of Respiratory Care for
chapters on sleep disturbances, he has been a clinical reviewer for such publications as the Journal of Clinical Outcomes Management. Dr. Lee also has been a frequent
lecturer, holding academic appointments at the University of Pittsburgh School of
Medicine and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Dr. Lee’s memberships include the American Thoracic Society, the American
Academy of Sleep Medicine, the American College of Chest Physicians, and the Society for Anesthesia and Sleep Medicine.

“We are pleased to welcome a physician of Dr. Lee’s caliber to Excela Health
