Cancer Treatment Centers of America Publishes Cancer Patient Treatment Results

Cancer Treatment Centers of America, a national network of five hospitals, announced the release of its fifth annual Patient Treatment Results, a transparent and comprehensive reporting of patient treatment outcomes for 11 cancer types, including the most common:

• Breast cancer
• Colon cancer
• Esophageal cancer
• Kidney cancer
• Lung cancer
• Ovarian cancer
• Pancreatic cancer
• Prostate cancer
• Rectal cancer
• Stomach cancer

The Patient Treatment Results report reflects an industry-leading standard for transparency, as less than 10 percent of all cancer care providers in the U.S. publish their results. The CTCA report includes data on length of life, quality of life, care experience, and patient safety and quality results. The report is available for download via the CTCA website, at

“To our knowledge, this new report is among the most complete in the nation in terms of reporting of treatment results, patient ratings of their experience, and self-reported quality of life data from the beginning of treatment through return visitation,” said Raj Garg, MD, JD, President and CEO of CTCA. “Today’s release reaffirms our commitment to providing patients and their families with information that will help them make more informed choices about their care.”

The 2017/2018 Patient Treatment Results book provides five-year survival rates for CTCA patients treated between 2000 and 2013 for 11 cancer types, including complex cancers such as pancreatic and small cell lung cancers. Additionally, the report supplies companion survival data for each cancer type as reported by the National Cancer Institute in its Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program. The report also details various safety and quality of life measurements during treatment, which are not typically reported by other oncology treatment centers.
