About 75 percent of our patients come from out of state. One reason is because we make it easy to get here.
If you decide to travel to Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Eastern Regional Medical Center (Eastern) for treatment, our Transportation Department works closely with our travel schedulers to make your trip as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
Prior to your arrival at Eastern, our representatives will coordinate the details for you. If you're traveling from out of town, we are available to help you with your transportation arrangements to and from the gateway airport, train depot or bus station that serves our hospital, and arrange for a wheelchair to be provided for you should you need it.

Our transportation team
Jeffrey Lawry, Supervisor of Transportation at Eastern, leads our team of 33 friendly and reliable transportation representatives, including 29 drivers and four dispatchers.
We understand you may be apprehensive about traveling. The transportation team is here to make you comfortable and relaxed. “Every patient is different and some may arrive nervous or scared. Our drivers are compassionate, caring and ready to ease any worries,” says Lawry.
The transportation team is available from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week. In addition, a dispatcher is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
