The US remains a leading destination for cancer treatment, and the CTCA integrative philosophy appeals to international patients.
Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
Patients Beyond Borders® is pleased to announce the June, 2012 release of FOCUS ON: Cancer Treatment Centers of America®, profiling one of America’s leading cancer treatment networks specializing in treating patients dealing with complex and advanced-stage cancer diagnoses.
Patients Beyond Borders FOCUS ON: Cancer Treatment Centers of America will provide international healthcare consumers with in-depth information on the hospitals’ unique cancer treatment approach, their top doctors and specialties, achievements, and accreditations, as well as patient case studies and travel information.
Founded decades ago by Richard J. Stephenson and based on its own patient-focused principles of the Mother Standard® of care, Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has grown from a single comprehensive treatment center in suburban Illinois to a network of facilities operating throughout the US, including Philadelphia, PA; Tulsa, OK; Goodyear, AZ; and Seattle, WA. A sixth center in Atlanta, GA, will welcome patients beginning August, 2012.
Accredited by The Joint Commission, American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, College of American Pathologists, and American College of Radiology, among others, CTCA’s comprehensive and integrative approach to fighting cancer incorporates traditional methods, such as surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, with supportive therapies, including 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.
“We’ve had the opportunity of touring the Illinois and Pennsylvania facilities and were quite impressed with the CTCA approach, achievements, treatment results, and perhaps most important, the hospitals’ dedication to the patient,” says Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders. “CTCA is revolutionizing the way cancer patients are experiencing, and in many cases surviving, this disease.”
“The US remains a leading destination for cancer treatment, and the CTCA integrative philosophy appeals to international patients,” says Steve Bonner, CEO and president of CTCA. “We are pleased to join Patients Beyond Borders’ growing family of leading global medical providers.”
FOCUS ON: Cancer Treatment Centers of America will be accessible from a variety of sources, including the Patients Beyond Borders website, CTCA websites, Kindle, GoogleBooks, Apple iBooks and other eBook readers, iPhone and other mobile devices, medical, business, and reference libraries worldwide, and all popular social networks. The publication will be translated into Spanish later this year.
