Salem Chest Specialists

Pulmonary Care

Pulmonary medicine is used for the treatment of diseases related to the lungs and breathing. Salem Chest Specialists (SCS), part of the Clinically Integrated Network of Novant Health (NH), treat people with the full spectrum of pulmonary diseases.  As part of the NH network, we maintain up to date electronic medical records using the EPIC-Dimensions format.  For more education regarding common pulmonary diagnoses (i.e.; COPD, Asthma, Cough, Lung Cancer), we highly recommend visiting the patient education portal of our website. 

SCS providers deliver outpatient pulmonary care at two clinic locations in Winston Salem, N.C., as well as inpatient pulmonary care at NH Forsyth Medical Center.  We work very closely with our local colleagues in Primary Care, Cardiology, ENT, Allergy, and Oncology.  Our unique collaboration with experts from the Derrick L. Davis Cancer Institute - Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Thoracic Surgery, Radiology, and Supportive Care - helps provide the most efficient and effective care possible for our patients with lung cancer.
