"I think one of the most important things I can do for my patients is be there for them when they need someone to answer their questions. I also feel it’s important to be there for my patients emotionally, allowing them to cry or vent, and giving them a hug or laugh when they need it. That makes my day."

Nurse practitioner Sarah Tuohy left a hospital that she worked at for 12 years for the opportunity to work for Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA). “At CTCA®, I am able to provide the best care possible to the patients I see, and so are the doctors that I work with,” she says.
In December 2009, Tuohy joined the surgical oncology team at CTCA near Chicago. In 2014, she transitioned to support Dr. Laura Farrington in the medical oncology clinic. Tuohy primarily assesses patients and their symptoms to see if they are able to receive chemotherapy during their visit.
Tuohy completed the University of Wisconsin-Parkside/Milwaukee’s Consortial Nursing Program to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She is a certified advanced practice nurse prescriber and family nurse practitioner, and she holds a certification in basic life support. Tuohy is a member of the Wisconsin Nurses Association and Sigma Theta Tau, the international honor society of nursing.
