Recently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) provided direction for hospitals to begin seeing and treating patients again—including for elective procedures. Led by a team of physicians, CTCA has put measures in place to continue to have cancer patients screened, diagnosed and treated under appropriate health and safety protocols. Your care team is available to schedule your appointments and answer any questions you may have.

If you or the caregiver accompanying you to your appointments experience a fever with shortness of breath, cough or sore throat just prior to travelling or while on your way to CTCA, you should return home and see your primary care physician for care. If you experience any symptoms you feel require immediate medical attention, you must report to the closest emergency services department or dial 911. We are taking these measure to protect the safety and health of all our patients and their loved ones.

What cancer patients need to know about COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is a fast-changing environment for cancer patients who need current and reliable information. We’ve developed a number of COVID-related resources specifically for cancer patients, from blogs and podcasts to videos and FAQs.

Patient safety during the COVID-19 outbreak

With heightened awareness around preventing the spread of COVID-19, our top priority remains the health and safety of our patients. We also recognize the stress and expense that may come with traveling for treatment. That’s why we’ve expanded our travel and accommodations benefits for qualified patients, covering the cost of their trip and providing lodging at complementary or reduced rates, to help make the trip as easy as possible.
