CARTI Makes Conway a Cancer Treatment Destination 

Expands Local Offerings to Include Cancer Genetics and Risk Management 

It’s often called the “City of Colleges,” but Conway offers more than exceptional educational opportunities. Between its steady stream of restaurant announcements and quickly growing population, now second only to Little Rock in Central Arkansas, the city has become a draw for new residents and visitors alike. With the CARTI Cancer Center, conveniently located at 2605 College Avenue, Conway is also a destination for leading-edge cancer care. 

For nearly 50 years, CARTI has been known as Arkansas’ cancer specialists. From its beginnings in Little Rock, the not-for-profit provider has radically expanded its footprint to ensure patients can receive treatment as close to home and conveniently as possible. Today, it includes 18 locations across the state and Arkansas’ first dedicated cancer surgery center. Amidst its rapid growth, CARTI has focused on providing a broad scope of support services, such as transportation, lodging and meals, to help eliminate any potential barriers to treatment. No matter where they call home, CARTI wants to meet patients where they are. 

Enter the CARTI Cancer Center in Conway. Open five days a week, Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Friday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., the 13,400-square-foot facility allows local patients to receive the treatment and advanced services they need — all from the expert oncologists, radiologists and medical staff they know and trust. It features a chemotherapy infusion center with 15 heated chairs, extra room for loved ones and comfortable public spaces, including a lobby and atrium. Since opening the doors of the renovated center in 2019, CARTI has provided thousands of local patients and their families with medical and radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging. Recently, CARTI expanded its service offerings in Conway to meet the rising demand for cancer genetics and risk management.  

According to studies, 10 to 15% of cancers are hereditary. That’s why medical experts encourage individuals with a diagnosis or family history of cancer to consider genetic evaluation. Now, they can complete this process at the CARTI Cancer Center in Conway, just down the road from where they live and work. If a positive genetic test result occurs, CARTI’s experts — the state’s largest cancer genetics and risk management team — can guide individuals in their next steps. They can offer tailored treatment plans or walk them through preventative medication, imaging and screening options. It’s yet another leading-edge tool CARTI uses to help local patients and their families find and treat their cancer. 

“World-class cancer care close to home” is more than a saying for CARTI. It’s a promise. The not-for-profit provider’s mission is to make trusted cancer care accessible to every patient it serves through compassion, innovation and purpose. And as residents and individuals from surrounding communities have witnessed firsthand, CARTI intends to deliver on it. If individuals are facing a cancer diagnosis or are considered potentially high-risk, they should ask for CARTI. It’s the cancer treatment destination, and it’s located right here in Conway.
