Expanding its program to the international patient is a natural progression of CTCA’s vision to offer a holistic approach to cancer care to everyone, everywhere.
Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Patients Beyond Borders® (PBB) is pleased to announce the official release of FOCUS ON: Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), profiling one of the world’s leading cancer hospital networks dedicated to treating patients with complex and advanced-stage cancer.
This FOCUS ON publication will provide international healthcare consumers in-depth information on the hospitals’ unique cancer treatment approach; top doctors and their specialties; quality and patient loyalty achievements as well as patient case studies and travel information.
Founded in 1988 by Richard J. Stephenson and grounded in its own patient-focused principles of the Mother Standard® of care, CTCA has grown from a single, comprehensive treatment center in suburban Chicago to a network of regional medical centers across the US, including Philadelphia, PA; Tulsa, OK; Goodyear, AZ; and, most recently, Newnan, GA.
The Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC), located in metropolitan Atlanta, officially opened August 15, 2012. Like all CTCA centers, this 226,000-square-foot facility is a fully digital hospital focused on complex and advanced-stage cancer. Each Center offers options in comprehensive cancer care for patients and their families throughout Mexico, North, Central and South America.
“We are pleased to be part of the Patients Beyond Borders Focus On series,” said CTCA president and CEO Stephen Bonner. “Patients trust Patients Beyond Borders to inform them about high quality, U.S. based care. PBB’s partnership will allow us to offer our patient-centered, integrative treatment approach to individuals fighting cancer outside the US borders, and to our neighbors in Mexico and throughout Latin America.”
CTCA is accredited by leading organizations including The Joint Commission, American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, College of American Pathologists, and American College of Radiology. Its comprehensive and integrative approach to fighting cancer incorporates the most current versions of traditional methods such as surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. CTCA also includes comprehensive supportive therapies such as nutritional counseling, naturopathic medicine, mind-body medicine, oncology rehabilitation, pain management, and spiritual support to help patients manage side effects and improve quality of life.
Focus On: Cancer Treatment Centers of America will be available in both English and Spanish editions, and will be introduced as part of a global communication initiative to international cancer patients in Mexico, Canada, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. Healthcare consumers will be able to access FOCUS ON: Cancer Treatment Centers of America from a variety of sources including the Patients Beyond Borders website, CTCA website, Kindle, GooglePlay, iBooks and other eBook readers, iPhone and other mobile devices, medical, business, and reference libraries worldwide, and all popular social networks.
“Expanding its program to the international patient is a natural progression of CTCA’s vision to offer a holistic approach to cancer care to everyone, everywhere,” says Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders. “CTCA’s wide array of treatment offerings will particularly appeal to cultures outside the US that are well-acquainted with integrated strategies of care.”
