A ribbon-cutting ceremony and unveiling of the expanded Infusion Center at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Tulsa was held Aug. 23 at CTCA, located at 81st Street and Highway 169.
There was a brief statement from CTCA representatives, followed by a ribbon cutting with both the Tulsa and Broken Arrow chambers. CTCA board members were present. Guests were given tours of the facility.
The Infusion Center was expanded from 8,256 square feet to nearly 20,000. CTCA-Tulsa has added six additional medical support stations, two private rooms, an additional wound care room and 23 chemotherapy bays. Each infusion station was changed from chairs with curtains to private room-like atmospheres with cabinetry to hide monitoring equipment, trash and linen storage. Oxygen access is now in each bay to eliminate portable tanks. Water features and views of a rooftop garden have been added to create a peaceful, serene atmosphere.
The mission of Cancer Treatment Centers of America is to be the home of integrative and compassionate cancer care. CTCA never stops searching for and providing powerful and innovative therapies to heal the whole person, improve quality of life and restore hope.
The vision is to be recognized and trusted by people living with cancer as the premier center for healing and hope.
