History of CTCA at Southwestern Regional Medical Ceneter

  • Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988 by Richard J Stephenson in honor of his mother, who lost her battle with cancer in 1982. He was challenged to create a better experience for cancer patients that empower them to participate in their treatment.
  • After spending 15 years located inside the CityPlex Towers, CTCA built a state-of-the-art 195,845 square foot hospital designed around the needs of cancer patients and caregivers. More than 100 CTCA cancer patients, along with their family members and healthcare providers were involved with the hospital’s design process—from the initial building planning concepts to architectural elements, including exterior appearance, interior design, lighting and colors. CTCA moved into this new building of healing and hope on April 29, 2005.
  • 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 Integrative care where oncologists work closely with staff dietitians, 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 Empowered Care ® , a care model where 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: From Hyperthemic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) to an in-house neurosurgery program, as well as NOVACTM7 Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) and research studies such as Calypso ® Lung and Deep Tissue Hyperthermia. CTCA offers a wide variety of options to help patients with complex cancer diseases. (See “Technology” sheet).
