Based at one of Maryland’s best hospitals as ranked by U.S. News & World Report, the Angelos Center for Lung Diseases provides a comprehensive, integrated approach to the diagnosis, treatment, care, and prevention of a wide range of pulmonary illnesses and related conditions, including COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, one of the most common lung diseases.
Our transdisciplinary team of pulmonologists, surgeons, nurses, oncologists, respiratory therapists, and other specialists have treated more patients with lung disease than any other community hospital in Maryland. Their ongoing collaboration ensures our patients have ready access to the latest, most effective medications, therapies, surgical techniques, and treatment technologies, plus the knowledge resources to quickly respond to questions and other requests for assistance.
Thanks to a generous donation from local philanthropist Peter Angelos, MedStar Franklin Square can provide these valuable services from a convenient, centralized location. For our patients, that means faster, more accurate diagnoses; seamless interaction across various specialties and services; and a clearer path toward the best possible outcomes.
