Centers of Excellence

coe-sealThe community hospital Center of Excellence (COE) program is rooted in the belief that the best way to treat lung cancer is by providing patient-focused coordinated, multidisciplinary care with the expertise of a nurse navigator. The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) has formed the Centers of Excellence program to enable patients access to standard of care lung cancer treatment in their local community.

ALCF identifies hospitals that meet rigorous qualifying criteria and works closely with COE hospital staff to ensure the highest quality of care with a patient-centric approach. Meeting the COE criteria puts COE member hospitals on par with leading academic and research institutions and provides patients with access to the latest innovations across the lung cancer care continuum not typically found in community hospitals. This multidisciplinary care model includes:
