The Division of Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University is well-established and has a tradition of excellence in medical education, tertiary clinical care and research and has repeatedly been listed as a top performer in the U.S.News & World Report. Under new leadership, the division is entering an exciting era of growth and innovation that includes the following additions:

  • Jane and Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute — Jefferson Health and National Jewish Health 

  • A 10 bed state-of-the-art sleep lab

  • A new lung biology translational research laboratory

  • New faculty to provide a full array of interventional bronchoscopy services

We have expanded our critical care services to Methodist Hospital in South Philly, and we have added 25 new medical critical care beds at our main Center City location.

We are committed to further expand translational research with additional recruitment of clinician scientists under the Jane and Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute — Jefferson Health and National Jewish Health .

We have also integrated ambulatory facilities with physician offices, patient exam rooms, a complete pulmonary function laboratory with exercise facilities, conference rooms with space for patient education, imaging facilities and a sleep lab.

The Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Division has 15 full-time faculty and 12 fellows in a three-year training program. We oversee approximately 1,000 ICU admissions, 1,000 in-patient consultations and more than 600 endoscopic procedures each year. Moreover, there are approximately 8,000 outpatient pulmonary visits annually.

The medical center also extends to our locations in South Philadelphia, including both Methodist at Hospital and the Navy Yard, and Voorhees, NJ. Our expert faculty has experience in the following:

  • Asthma and obstructive lung disease

  • Sarcoidosis and interstitial lung disease

  • Interventional bronchoscopy and lung cancer

  • Management of a solitary pulmonary nodule

  • Lung cancer screenings

  • Rare lung diseases
