Each day, cancer patients from across the nation come to Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) for cancer treatment.
For many, the decision is easy. CTCA® provides options their current provider does not. Others need more information to decide what’s best for them.
Is It Worth the Trip?
About two-thirds of CTCA patients (or about 70 percent) travel to one of our cancer hospitals from another state. Why?
- CTCA physicians have expertise in treating many forms of cancer, including complex and advanced-stage diseases.
- CTCA hospitals offer some of the most advanced technologies and tools to fight cancer combined with evidence-based supportive therapies to improve quality of life—all under one roof.
- CTCA patients receive an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan by cancer experts from multiple disciplines who work together as a team alongside the patient.
- CareEdge®, a first-of-its-kind service that provides a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan in five days or less, is only offered at CTCA hospitals.
Each CTCA hospital is accredited by several renowned, professional healthcare organizations that supervise the quality of cancer care, including some or all of the following:
- The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO)
- American Association of Blood Banks
- College of American Pathologists
- American College of Radiology
- American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer
- FDA Mammography Quality Standards Act Certified
- Association of Community Cancer Centers
- Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA)
- Nuclear Regulatory Commission
- Department of Environmental Quality
- National College of Naturopathic Medicine
- American Diabetes Association’s Diabetes Self-Management Education Program
Information about the statistical results of cancer treatment helps patients choose the best place to go for treatment. Yet, few hospitals or care facilities publish their treatment results, patient survival statistics, or information about the quality of life patients experience in their care.
At CTCA, we believe you have the right to know this information. We currently publish our patient survival rates, along with quality of life, patient loyalty, and speed of care results for 10 of the most prevalent cancers we treat; and we continue to compile our results for additional cancer types.
