Travel To CTCA

​Travel to CTCA

We make getting here easy

Nearly 70 percent of patients at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) travel to one of our hospitals from another state. Why? Our physicians have expertise in treating many forms of cancer, including rare, complex and advanced-stage diseases. Our hospitals offer both standard-of-care and state-of-the-art technologies and tools to fight cancer, while supporting patients’ quality of life by providing therapies designed to help them prevent and manage side effects. Each patient receives an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan customized to his or her needs by a team of cancer experts collaborating on that patient’s care.

At CTCA®, we do all we can to see that your treatment is as convenient and stress-free as possible. Our experienced team will work with you in arranging the various aspects of your visit, from gathering your medical records to scheduling your appointments and, for qualifying patients, making your travel and lodging arrangements.*
