With CTCA, the combined organization 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, expanding the portfolio, reach and impact of City of Hope’s world-class cancer services and capabilities, including research and development, to more patients, families and communities nationwide.
