City of Hope, national cancer institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, has completed its acquisition of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), a network of oncology hospitals and outpatient care centers across the United States. In doing so, City of Hope now has one of the largest geographic footprints in cancer research and treatment, providing cancer patients with timely access to care, clinical trials and innovation on a national scale. The combined organization now has operations in four states, serving approximately 115,000 patients annually.
Together, we are creating a new model for how cancer care is delivered, leveraging real-world cancer care experience to inform scientific innovation and making tomorrow’s new discoveries available to the people who need them today,” says Robert Stone, the president and CEO of City of Hope and the Helen and Morgan Chu Chief Executive Officer Distinguished Chair.
With the CTCA, the organization has more than 11,000 team members and 575 physicians across a network of locations in California, Arizona, Illinois and Georgia. With the completion of this acquisition, City of Hope intends to begin the process of converting CTCA to a nonprofit organization.
