Silver Cross offers Coordinated Approach to Battling Lung Cancer
New Lenox, IL (Aug. 15, 2014)--Jodi Dozier, a longtime smoker, went to her doctor for her annual physical. Dr. Nanette Gormley ordered a chest-X-ray, which showed a nodule on Dozier’s lung that required further testing. She chose to go to Silver Cross Hospital for the CT Lung Scan since it was close to her Orland Park home. While Dozier was checking in for her test, she noticed a flyer for a new Multi-Disciplinary Lung Cancer Conference where she could have several cancer experts on staff at Silver Cross review her medical information and provide a consensus recommendation on a plan of care all in the same day and at no charge. She tucked it in her handbag—just in case!
