A dedicated member of the mind-body team at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), Susi Roos is a firm believer in patient empowerment and whole-person care. Roos joined CTCA in 2006 and has come to believe that every battle with cancer can lead to healing in some fundamental way.
Roos works alongside a multidisciplinary team of experts and physicians to offer patients options, comfort and support in their journey with cancer. Bringing to the team extensive knowledge and experience developing wellness and holistic medicine programs, Roos uses her training in practices such as guided imagery, HeartMath, EFT, coaching and Life Line to help patients develop strategies to maintain mental and emotional strength as they battle cancer.
Most recently, Roos was one of 20 nurses to complete the CTCA-sponsored BirchTree Holistic Nurses Training Program, which she believes will positively impact the way nursing is practiced at CTCA.
During her many years of practice, Roos has not only worked in emergency rooms as a registered nurse, run private healthcare practices and founded holistic centers, but she has also been a sought-after speaker on patient care for medical conferences, including the Congress of Health Care Executives, Rush Medical Center’s Body Mind Conference and the Nebraska Hospital Association.
Roos earned a nursing degree from the Ravenswood Medical Center School of Nursing. She earned a bachelor’s degree in health care and administration from Ottawa University and a master’s degree in divinity from the Seminary of Spiritual Peacemaking.
At CTCA, Roos also serves patients as a same-day surgery nurse. When not assisting CTCA patients and caregivers, Roos maintains a private practice as a holistic cancer coach, healing facilitator and speaker.
