Miami Valley Hospital Completes 200th Monarch™ Platform Case


Miami Valley Hospital accomplished its 200th Monarch™ Platform case in November 2022, a milestone for technology used to diagnose and treat lung cancer earlier.

Monarch™ Platform, which was funded by Miami Valley Hospital Foundation donors, is a robotic bronchoscopy that enables pulmonary specialists to navigate and search the delicate, distant branches of the lung and obtain tissue samples from hard-to-reach nodules for biopsy.

Miami Valley Hospital was the first in Ohio to use the Monarch™ Platform, which integrates the latest advancements in robotics, software, data science, and endoscopy.
