The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a national, for-profit organization that was founded by Richard J. Stephenson. The treatment center was founded in honor of his mother who had died of cancer. The first hospital was opened in at Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion, Illinois, in 1988. Richard Stephenson was not impressed with the method of treatment or treatment options his mother had received that were available during this time period. Four more hospitals in Arizona, Georgia, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania were opened during 2005 to 2015. Cancer Treatment Centers of America opened their first international medical office, in 2015, in the Lomas de Chapultepec, Mexico City, Mexico.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America focuses on a comprehensive approach in the diagnosis and the treatment of cancer. They offer traditional treatment such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Cutting edge and state of the art technologies and drug therapies, as well as, alternative treatments such as advanced genomic testing, immunotherapy, holistic medicine are also available to their patients. No two cancers are alike, and no two patients are alike. New and emerging treatments with the most positive impact on the health of all patients are identified and studied by the medical team. Each patient has a custom treatment plan that is created specifically to yield the most effective and successful outcome for them. Those who have advanced cancer and who may not have successfully been treated elsewhere have the opportunity to access treatment that may not have been previously available to them.
