- Today, CTCA provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary path to cancer care by integrating leading-edge medical treatments with naturopathic medicine, nutrition, oncology rehabilitation, psychological counseling, spiritual support and pain management.
Hospital’s Trademark Principles
- Integrative care where oncologists work closely with staff nutritionists, mind-body therapists, naturopathic doctors, physical therapists and spiritual support to treat the whole person all under one roof.
- Mother Standard®, a standard required at CTCA that exceeds the level found at most hospitals. This is the standard of care CTCA staff would want for their own mothers.
- Patient Empowerment Medicine®, patients and caregivers are positioned at the center of their care, voicing opinions and participating in their own treatment decisions.
- CTCA offers exclusive technologies and treatment protocols: TomoTherapy® radiation treatment to pinpoint and more safely treat cancer, and metronomic chemotherapy to minimize the side effects of conventional chemotherapy.
