In a bit of exciting news, the Lung Institute is currently getting ready to open our newest expansion in Scottsdale, Arizona! This will be the first clinic to open up in the western United States and we are currently looking at an early 2015 opening, so stay tuned for more information.

Last month saw the Lung Institute supporting community outreach through public awareness events in downtown Tampa for World COPD Day and the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout. WUSF News also stopped by to talk with the Lung Institute about the Great American Smokeout. Read on for more information about these two events.

Here we grow again! You read it right, the Lung Institute is getting ready to expand out west!

This means that we will bring cellular therapys and innovative medicine for pulmonary conditions for the first time to the Rocky Mountain region.

National COPD Awareness MonthCommunity Outreach

November proved to be a great community outreach month for us in downtown Tampa. Members of the Lung Institute staff were available on November 19 (World COPD Day) and November 20 (The Great American Smokeout) to bring public awareness to these important campaigns. World COPD Day was marked by offering informational flyers about the disease and engaging community members on the nature of this chronic pulmonary condition. During the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout we challenged members of the public to see just how difficult it was to breathe with damaged lungs and to take up the pledge to quit smoking. Visit our Facebook page for coverage from these events.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary. Lung Institute does not pay for or script patient testimonials.
