COMMUNITY DONATIONS: Cancer Treatment Center of America in Tulsa employees stand with donated items during the hospital’s recent Emergency Infant Services Donation and Needs Drive.
This year marks the 25th anniversary for Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Tulsa. The hospital, which exclusively treats adult cancer patients and follows “the Mother Standard of care,” offers advanced cancer treatment to Oklahoma residents and the surrounding region.
As part of a national network of five hospitals, CTCA in Tulsa combines advanced forms of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and imaging services with scientifically supported therapies such as nutrition, spiritual support, mind-body medicine and naturopathic medicine, all under one roof.
CTCA employs approximately 720 people in Tulsa and has almost 200 allied health professionals who are focused on delivering high-quality service and empowering patients to achieve wellness. A recent analysis conducted by Deloitte consulting revealed that CTCA has a $383 million annual impact on the state’s economy and is the largest medical importer of patients to Oklahoma.
In addition to the economic impact, CTCA has also developed a community outreach program, called CTCA Hope Works, to provide employees an outlet for volunteerism. In its first five months of existence, CTCA volunteers donated 1300 hours and raised almost $400,000 for 45 Tulsa-area organizations.
Consistently named one of the “Best Places to Work in Oklahoma” by the Best Companies Group, CTCA in Tulsa was recently awarded a Five-Star quality score – the highest possible rating – by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
