Services for Your Complete Lung Health
Lung Disease Prevention
Our expert team is here for you with preventive lung care, from immunizations to a holistic wellness program that helps support healthy choices and lifestyles.
Education and Support Groups
Finding new ways to support patients and families affected by lung cancer and COPD is of the utmost importance to us.
Smoking Cessation Programs
Our personalized and effective cessation programs were designed to help you address personal challenges, manage withdrawal symptoms and ultimately succeed in quitting smoking.
We’ll uncover the source of your breathing issues through diagnostic services like pleural procedures, pulmonary services, computed tomography (CT), interventional radiology (IR), guided biopsies or robotic bronchoscopy.
Lung Cancer Screening
With low-dose computed tomography (LDCT), we can help detect lung cancer in high-risk patients before symptoms even begin.
Lung Nodule Surveillance
Our care team is trained to identify and track lung nodules identified during your stay which can lead to early detection of lung cancer.
Lung Health Treatments
When you need lung treatment, we’re here with innovative technologies and therapies, including access to clinical trials.
Managing, controlling and alleviating the symptoms and stresses of lung disease and chronic pulmonary conditions is possible with help from our caring team.
Nationally Recognized, Patient-Centered Care
Without question, early detection and treatment of lung cancer saves lives. That’s why we’re committed to helping you move swiftly from diagnosis through treatment with patient-centered, multidisciplinary care. We’ve been so successful with this approach to care, that the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer has named AdventHealth Ocala’s Lung Health Program a Care Continuum Center of Excellence (CCCOE).
