Since 1988, Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) has been helping patients win the fight against cancer using advanced technology and a personalized approach. CTCA specializes in advanced-stage and complex cancer treatment, empowering each patient with information and resources to be in control of their own care plan. Our national network of fully accredited cancer hospitals earned Full Standards Compliance from the Joint Commission, and recognition for delivering high-quality care and exceeding patient safety standards from numerous renowned healthcare organizations, such as the Association of Community Cancer Centers and the American College of Radiology. Each hospital provides state-of-the-art cancer treatment by a dedicated team of oncologists, surgeons and other health experts. We offer a welcoming environment, where patients and their family members can find comprehensive cancer care under one roof.
At CTCA, our patients always come first. We are committed to bringing advanced treatment options to patients sooner, including highly accurate diagnostic tools; safer, more targeted radiation therapies; minimally invasive surgical techniques; and new targeted drug therapies.
In our Patient Empowered Care® clinic, our doctors come to you, the patient. They listen to your questions, review your health history and provide you and your family with clear, well-defined choices so you can make informed decisions about your treatment. Together, you and your care team will develop an integrated treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and diagnosis, and designed to meet your individual goals.
The Mother Standard® If your mother had cancer, how would you want her to be treated? That simple question has evolved into the CTCA Mother Standard® of care. The Mother Standard represents a unique, vibrant approach that delivers a complete, patient-focused treatment experience. The Mother Standard of care allows our physicians to offer patients the latest, evidenced-based treatments to attack the cancer, combined with a comprehensive array of scientifically supported integrative therapies to help strengthen the immune system, ease side effects and improve quality of life. We know that cancer patients want their treatment to incorporate the needs of the whole person—physically, emotionally and spiritually. We know they value greatly a multidisciplinary care team that will be responsive to their personal needs throughout treatment.
Quality of life Our focus is not just on fighting cancer, but also making sure that you are comfortable throughout your treatment. Our cancer treatment statistics and results demonstrate that our constant efforts make a difference when it comes to the quality of life for our patients. Throughout your treatment, we’ll provide therapies like nutrition, naturopathic medicine, pain management and rehabilitation. These therapies are fully integrated into your treatment plan to help boost your immune system and manage side effects, so you can continue treatment with fewer delays or interruptions. We also provide diabetes management, advanced cardiac and respiratory care, as well as reconstructive services. Our Survivorship Support Program continues to support you once you return home.
