Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has opened new surgical facility at Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion, Illinois.
The facility will provide surgical therapy procedures for patients who are suffering from cancer.
The 25,000ft2 surgical suite consists of four operating rooms, five post-anaesthesia care units and eight private same-day admission rooms.
Operating rooms are well equipped, and all pre and post-operative areas provide privacy and space for families, hospital officials said.
Post-anaesthesia care units facilitate one isolation bay and the surgical suite is also equipped with touchpad lighting and laparoscopic systems.
CTCA Midwestern CEO Anne Meisner said surgical oncology at CTCA at Midwestern brings compassion and innovation together in breakthrough procedures like intraoperative radiation therapy and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
CTCA Midwestern chief operating officer Scott Jones said the CTCA at Midwestern mission is to never stop searching for new ways to meet the needs of their patients.
“With the opening of the surgical suite we can continue to improve patient care and provide more hope to patients choosing CTCA,” Jones said.
CTCA is a network of regional destination hospitals specialisng in complex and advance-stage cancer care.
It provides fully integrated and individualised cancer treatment experience at hospitals located in suburban Chicago, Philadelphia, suburban Phoenix and Tulsa, with a fifth hospital opening in Atlanta in 2012.
