NEA Baptist Fowler Family Center for Cancer Care holds ceremony June 1

JONESBORO – A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. June 1 for the NEA Baptist Fowler Family Center for Cancer Care.

The cancer care center is part of the NEA Baptist Health Care System’s new, fully integrated medical campus in Jonesboro. 

The campus includes NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital and NEA Baptist Clinic.

The cancer center is named in honor of donors Wallace and Jama Fowler, whose gift – the largest given in the history of the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation – allowed for the creation of the Fowler Family Patient Assistance Endowment. 

The freestanding 34,000-square-foot advanced cancer treatment center will feature radiation therapy, chemotherapy, clinical research and supportive services. 

In 2007, Baptist partnered with NEA Clinic, the largest physician-owned, multispecialty medical group practice in the region, to meet the health care needs of the northeast Arkansas community through NEA Baptist Health Care System. In 2011, construction began on the new NEA Baptist medical campus.
