Creighton University, First Medical Center in Nebraska to Join Care Center Network
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF; pulmonaryfibrosis.org) announced in August that eight new sites have joined its Care Center Network (CCN) to help serve the more than 200,000 Americans living with pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a devastating disease which causes progressive scarring in the lungs. One of these new sites is Creighton University, making it the first medical center to join the network in Nebraska. Sixty-eight medical centers nationwide now offer expertise in accurately diagnosing and treating people with pulmonary fibrosis. Patients visiting CCN sites benefit from a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis, assistance with social services, and opportunities to participate in research.
