NEA Announces New Cancer Treatment and Research Center

Ocyober 17, 2006 - Posted at 1:45 p.m. CST

Jonesboro, AR - NEA Health Systems and CARTI this morning announced their newest development plans here in Jonesboro, the NEA Cancer Institute and Research Center.

The new facility will offer all services needed for cancer treatments and researching under one roof. CARTI, a group leading the way in radiation oncology, is bringing their reputation and technology to Northeast Arkansas. Allison Melson, Vice President of Communications and Marketing for CARTI says they are excited to be a partner.

"We aren't only here to treat the patient, we are here to treat the whole family and the community. If anyone has ever been through cancer, they know what it's like and it's not just one of them that is affected, it is the whole family."

With the new center, patients will have all services needed for cancer treatment in one location. Fatigue is one of the complaints from cancer patients, but with everything in one location, driving to seperate medical facilities will no longer be necessary.

One of the services NEA Charitable Foundation already offers, Hope Circle, will be moving to the new location.

"We know that it's not just the patient, but also the families that go through a devastating time in their lives. We want to be able to offer support and education for them where their treatment is being given."

They hope to break ground on the new facility in 90 days with the expected opening date in Winter of 2007. For more information you can log onto www.neaclinic.com.
