Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is a growing network of privately held hospitals that provide a comprehensive, fully integrated and individualized cancer treatment experience. CTCA regional destination hospitals are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. The CTCA growth goal is to reach more cancer patients by offering six regional hospitals located within 300 miles of approximately 80 percent of the U.S. population.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988 by Richard J Stephenson. Stephenson was disappointed with the impersonal and insensitive cancer care his mother, Mary Brown Stephenson, received. When she lost her battle with cancer in 1982, Stephenson set out to change the face of cancer care. Stephenson's commitment to creating a truly patient-centered cancer treatment experience has been the organization's guiding principle ever since.
The Mother Standard®
CTCA promises that the treatment, quality of life and service needs of every patient will be at the center of the hearts, minds and actions of its staff every day. At CTCA, patients find accomplished physicians who specialize in caring for people living with advanced and complex cancer, along with experienced nutritionists, naturopathic doctors, mind-body therapists, spiritual counselors and other clinicians who provide quality-of-life support. Collectively they work to address the individual needs of patients, as if each patient was his or her own mother or loved one. They ask themselves: "If my mother had cancer, how would I want her to be treated?" That simple question has evolved into the CTCA Mother Standardof care, a unique, vibrant approach that delivers a complete, quality treatment experience based on what cancer patients and their families value most.
The Mother Standard of care allows CTCA clinicians to offer cancer patients the latest, evidence-based treatments to fight cancer, combined with a comprehensive array of scientifically supported complementary medical therapies to strengthen the immune system, ease side effects and improve quality of life.
