About NTI

Dignity Health Norton Thoracic Institute (NTI) specializes in a uniquely advanced approach to evaluating, diagnosing and treating patients with known or suspected diseases of the lungs, chest, diaphragm, mediastinum, or esophagus. Our team—which includes specialists in thoracic surgery, radiology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, rehabilitation, speech pathology, and pathology—will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your condition. Our state-of-the-art facilities allow us to offer both medical and surgical treatment options for our patients.

By using a variety of diagnostic testing and surgical procedures, we strive to provide personalized, patient-driven, compassionate care.

Advanced Lung, Respiratory and Interventional Pulmonary Disorders

As a part of the Dignity Health network, patients benefit from close collaboration with specialists in hepatology, endocrinology and more. This comprehensive network provides access to services and support stand-alone clinics cannot provide. In addition, patients cared for at NTI benefit from Dignity Health’s broad range of sub-specialty care including cardiology, nephrology, hepatology, endocrinology, and more.

Norton Thoracic Institute’s lung transplant program at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, one of only two Arizona hospitals with a lung transplant program, is one of the largest in the United States. In fact, we’re home of the country’s second-largest lung transplantation program, and with our streamlined processes, waitlist times are significantly shorter than you’ll find at other treatment centers. It’s just one way we’ve earned a reputation for excellence and innovation in caring for patients with complex and difficult thoracic problems. NTI also conducts groundbreaking research and trains young physicians to improve outcomes for patients in Arizona and beyond.
