Cancer research and treatment organisation City of Hope (COH) has completed the acquisition of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), a network of oncology hospitals and outpatient care centres across the US.
COH now has one of the largest geographic footprints in cancer research and treatment, providing cancer patients in the US with timely access to exceptional care, clinical trials and leading-edge innovation.
“With the completion of this acquisition, City of Hope and CTCA are combining complementary strengths, with a shared commitment to providing the best, most compassionate care possible,” said COH CEO Robert Stone. “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.”
The combined organisation will serve approximately 115,000 patients each year, with more than 11,000 team members and 575 physicians across a network of locations in California, Arizona, Illinois and Georgia.
The National Business Products Industry has been a committed supporter of COH for many years, raising more than $230 million over the past four decades.
