Patient-focused expert care

At CTCA, our mission is to provide individualized, whole-person care to our patients, and our cancer experts understand the value of focusing on one specific cancer type. That's why CTCA has centers, programs and departments that bring together multidisciplinary teams of doctors and other clinicians with expertise in treating specific cancer types.

Experts on what's available now, and what's on the horizon for these cancer types, the clinicians working in these centers, programs and departments collaborate daily. This close coordination helps them reach a diagnosis more efficiently and recommend an individualized care plan, so you can make an educated decision about your treatment. Knowing that fighting cancer is only part of the battle, your care team may also suggest various evidence-supported care services to help you manage the side effects of cancer and its treatment. Each patient's team is coordinated by a care manager, who helps you handle the details and responds to your questions as they arise.
