Cancer care is all we do
Hope in healing
Cancer Treatment Centers of America - (CTCA), part of City of Hope,
takes a unique and integrative approach to cancer care. Our
patient-centered care model is founded on a commitment to
personalized medicine, tailoring a combination of treatments to the
needs of each individual patient. At the same time, we support
patients' quality of life by offering therapies designed to help
them manage the side effects of treatment, addressing their
physical, spiritual and emotional needs, so they are better able to
stay on their treatment regimens and get back to life. At the core
of our whole-person approach is what we call the Mother Standard -
of care, so named because it requires that we treat our patients,
and one another, like we would want our loved ones to be treated.
