TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa's Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) announced it's closing after more than three decades.
CTCA started in 1988 and opened its second hospital in Tulsa on May 7, 1990. The location was established as a premier center of hope and healing for cancer patients and originally located in the CityPlex Towers, according to the organization's website.
CTCA Tulsa re-opened in a brand new facility in 2005 and became the only major Oklahoma hospital to focus completely on treating cancer. The hospital stated some of the reasons for closing include insurance limitations and patient access that limited care and choice options in the area on CTCA Tulsa's Update page.
Dana Haynie, President of CTCA Tulsa, said the primary focus will be a seamless transfer of patient care and employee support to either another CTCA location or a local hospital.
“CTCA has been proud to serve the community and cancer patients from our location in Tulsa, Oklahoma, over the past 30 years,” Haynie said. “Our top priorities during this transition will be to provide a seamless transition of our patients’ care and ensure our 400 employees are provided with resources and support as they navigate this difficult time as well.”

CTCA Tulsa is closing operations by June 1, 2021.
