The expanded facilities at the Winchester Center have allowed expansion of subspecialized pulmonary care as well as access to a wide array of multidisciplinary services, more than what was possible at the original Winchester Chest Clinic (WCC) on Yale New Haven Hospital’s York Street Campus.

The Yale Interventional Pulmonary team in Yale’s Section of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine (Yale-PCCSM) employs advanced technologies to diagnose and treat diseases in the chest, such as lung nodules and masses, lymph node enlargement, complex airways, and pleural effusions. The program, led by Kyle Bramley, MD, assistant professor of medicine (pulmonary), was one of the first interventional pulmonology programs in Connecticut when it was established in 2009.

Wildfire smoke contains tiny particles that can travel deep into the body and wreak havoc, particularly on the respiratory and cardiac systems, says Carrie Redlich, a pulmonologist and occupational environmental medicine physician at the Yale School of Medicine, who wasn’t involved in the exposure analysis.
