Tim Skalitzky returned to City of Hope in January 2022 as a Nurse Practitioner for patients receiving stem cell transplants. In his role, he monitors his patients for side effects and intervenes in their care before their symptoms worsen to help maintain their quality of life.

Before dedicating his career to caring for cancer patients, Skalitzky served as a track vehicle repairer in the US Army for 11 years. He has extensive, versatile experience in a range of health care settings, including ER and cardiology, but he decided on oncology when he learned about the multidisciplinary team he could contribute to at City of Hope and the patient population he’d have the privilege of serving.

In fact, Skalitzky worked at City of Hope Chicago as a Registered Nurse in the Hematologic Oncology Department from 2014 to 2019, helping to assist with duties like IV and ultrasound placement while also serving as shift lead and unit scheduler. He went on to another Chicago-area health care center before returning to City of Hope as a Nurse Practitioner.

“Out of all my experiences, being able to assist patients in the stem cell unit has been the most gratifying and inspiring,” Skalitzky says.

After earning his Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Cardinal Stritch in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Skalitzky went on to complete his Master of Science in Nursing at Chamberlain University from Addison, Illinois. His clinical areas of interest include stem cell transplants and hematological malignancies, and he is especially excited about the advances available to patients through CAR-T cell therapy.

Outside of City of Hope, Skalitzky enjoys spending time with his young daughter and his wife. He also fishes in salmon tournaments in the summer and deer hunts in the fall and winter.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
