Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) is honored to support the USHCC. Cancer ranks as the leading cause of death among Hispanics. One in three women, and one in two men, will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
CTCA® offers a comprehensive, fully integrated approach to cancer treatment at facilities located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. Through a personalized approach to promote healing on all levels—body, mind and spirit—CTCA offers esperanza, or hope, to Hispanics with cancer.
Consistently rated among U.S. hospitals that deliver the highest quality of care and patient experience, CTCA provides patients and families with comprehensive information about their treatment options and encourages their active participation in treatment decisions. CTCA is committed to helping raise awareness of cancer prevention in the Hispanic community, and educating and empowering our community about cancer awareness, prevention, resources and treatment options.
CTCA recently announced the creation of a Hispanic Advisory Council (HAC), a group of nationally known leaders in business and medicine tasked with providing insight and counsel on how to better serve the rapidly growing Hispanic community in the U.S. Through the HAC, CTCA will continue to forge Latino health initiatives. In April of this year, CTCA opened its first referral clinic in Mexico City. In addition, CTCA created the Mexico Physician Network, a group of leading oncologists based in Mexico, to help patients navigate the medical system and assist with necessary documentation for referring patients to the United States.
Headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., CTCA offers an integrative approach to care that combines advancements in genomic testing and precision cancer treatment, surgery, radiation, immunotherapy and chemotherapy, with evidence-based complementary therapies that support patients physically and emotionally, enhancing their quality of life while reducing side effects both during and after treatment.
