Cancer Treatment Centers of America



Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) has five hospitals across the United States, located in major metropolitan areas: in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, and near Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; and Phoenix, Arizona. Each of these state-of-the-art cancer centers is staffed by cancer experts who use leading-edge technologies and advanced treatments to deliver personalized, whole-person care. The CTCA® integrative treatment model treats cancer with conventional approaches like surgery, immunotherapy and chemotherapy, while also offering evidence-informed supportive therapies to manage cancer-related side effects, all under one roof.

We treat patients from all over the world. Nearly 70% of Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) patients travel to one of our hospitals from another state or country. On average, our patients travel 300 to 500 miles by plane, train, or automobile to reach one of our facilities. Why?

Our physicians have expertise in treating many forms of cancer – every stage, every day. Our hospitals offer advanced technologies and tools to fight cancer, combining them with supportive care services to help reduce side effects and improve quality of life – all under one roof. Our patients receive an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan from a team of cancer experts.
