History of CTCA
You probably wonder who has found this cancer center of America. Well the answer for that is Richard J. Stephenson. He opened the first hospital because of his mother. His mother died because of the cancer and he blamed it for the treatment that according to him was unsatisfied. So in 1988 he opened the first CTCA hospital in Zion, Illinois.
Since it was founded on 1988, there have been a lot of controversies against CTCA. As a cancer center of America, CTCA should give their patient their best treatment according of their type of cancer. But there have been an accused that they gave their patient the treatment that is unnecessary. They said it is because the CTCA wants to gain a lot of profit from their patients. There was also a complaint from FTC or Federal Trade Commission in 1993 said that CTCA has made a false claim to the success rates of their cancer treatment. There are also experts that said that for the CTCA own favor they made a bias comparison between their patients and SEER's patients. There are a lot of controversies against CTCA but regardless all of it the CTCA still operated until now and will continue operating and give their best to treat the cancer patients.
