Hope Springs Organic Farm
Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Western Regional Medical center (Western) is the first cancer hospital in the country to provide its patients with organic produce on-site. The 25-acre organic farm grows an abundance of vegetables, which lets our patients eat the freshest foods year-round.
CTCA® has teamed up with McClendon’s Select, one of the country’s top organic farm companies, owned by farmer Bob McClendon, to bring this vision to life. Western has provided patients with the highest quality of certified organic produce and meats since it opened in 2008. Growing food onsite allows CTCA to deliver delicious, highly nutritional meals to our patients and employees on the same day the food is harvested.
