National Jewish Health Lung Cancer Center
Founded in 1899 as a tuberculosis treatment center, National Jewish Health is a research, teaching, and community hospital that specializes in respiratory, immune, and allergy mediated diseases. Although National Jewish Health is a non-sectarian institution, in the early years of the hospital, the vision to provide 100% pro bono medical care and funding were supported by B’nai B’rith, an international Jewish community service organization. In keeping with its roots in service and as a provider of the highest, innovative quality care, National Jewish Health has earned its ranking as the “#1 Respiratory Hospital in the Nation” (US News and World Report).
National Jewish Health is a national leader in treatment of respiratory diseases. The integrated research environment provides collaboration of laboratory scientists and physicians within clinical, translational, and prevention research studies.
