In August, Cancer Treatment Centers of America will open a 212,000-square-foot, fully digital hospital in Newnan, Ga., near Atlanta. This will be the fifth CTCA destination hospital, offering patients and their families the Patient Empowered Care model.

"We are committed to delivering care based on what patients and their families want and value most through our model, Patient Empowered Care, which also encourages and empowers patients to be active participants in their medical decisions," said Gloria Barnes, RN, assistant vice president of patient care services for CTCA.

Team members all see the patient in the same room, one right after another, for a focused and uninterrupted visit to help ensure that they and the patient are in agreement throughout treatment, according to the CTCA website. The model places patients at the center of their care and encourages and enables them and their families to take an active decision-making role.

In addition to conventional treatments, CTCA offers naturopathic medicine, nutrition support, mind/body medicine, oncology rehabilitation, spiritual support and pain management.

"Nursing will be integral in delivering fully integrated cancer care under one roof at CTCA. Our vision in nursing is to care for the patient living with cancer by investing in the lives of the patients and families we serve," Barnes said.
