Different Services Provided for Cancer Treatment

That is why Blood and Cancer Institute Arkansas is dedicated to providing uncompromising independent care in Little Rock and Pine Bluff.

Patients throughout the region can rest assured they are receiving the best possible care without having to travel out of state.

For patients with cancer, proximity to their doctor is extremely important. The disease and its treatment can be exhausting and many people seeking cancer care are older with compounding health and mobility issues. As a result, travel can be a significant burden that complicates or disrupts care. In rural areas without many doctors, the paucity of local options can seriously influence outcomes for patients.
