Baptist Memorial Hospital (Memphis) and St. Thomas Health West (Nashville) are now part of our growing COE network, with 15 additional hospitals in TX, MA and other states throughout the US in the pipeline to join soon. Many thanks to Covidien – Interventional Lung Solutions, for its generous support of our COE Program, as well as to supporters Genentech (2014), and BMS (through 2015).
Our COE Program continues to grow because of these philanthropic companies and other generous supporters. Because 80% of patients receive treatment at their local community hospital, these are the centers where the greatest good can be done for the greatest number and we can improve the overall lung cancer patient survival rate.
CALL TO ACTION: Is there a hospital in your community that might be interested in becoming a COE? Help ALCF to identify new sites for our network by contacting [email protected].
