Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. For nearly more than 20 years, CTCA in Tulsa has been committed to finding the right combination of personalized cancer treatment for those diagnosed with cancer.
Patient-Centered Philosophy


Patients are at the center of everything CTCA does. With Patient Empowered Care®, patients are placed at the center of their care team, and can participate in their treatment decisions.
Integrated Approach


CTCA believes in treating the whole person, and not just the disease. That’s why CTCA strives to find the best combination of traditional treatments and technologies in radiation, chemotherapy and surgery and combine them with other supportive therapies such as nutrition, naturopathic medicine and spiritual support. Each day, the care team members meet and collaborate on treatment by sharing essential information and collectively determining an appropriate treatment plan for each patient.


Technology:
At CTCA, investing in new, leading-edge technologies and treatments is a priority. CTCA offers advanced technologies and treatment protocols such as Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC); an in-house neurosurgery program; as well as NOVACTM7 Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT); and research studies such as Calypso® Lung and Deep Tissue Hyperthermia.


Background:

In the 1970s, Mary Brown Stephenson was diagnosed and passed away from cancer. Mrs. Stephenson’s son, Richard J Stephenson became committed to changing the face of cancer care and opened his first hospital in 1988 in Chicago. At the center of Mr. Stephenson’s philosophy is the Mother Standard® -- a warm nurturing approach of caring for patients as you would want your own mothers to be cared for. This is now the guiding principle of all CTCA hospitals nationwide.
