The institute’s staff of physicians, nurses, researchers and other health care professionals is dedicated to improving the health of all cancer patients, both from Arkansas and beyond.
The institute was renamed in 2007 to honor the memory of the late Arkansas Lt. Gov. Winthrop P. Rockefeller, who died of a rare bone marrow disorder that can lead to leukemia. A lifelong Arkansan, Rockefeller was widely known for his dedication to community service, and he championed the cause of bone marrow donation awareness following his treatment.
In summer 2010, the Cancer Institute celebrated the grand opening of its 12-story expansion.
Filled with natural light, the expansion is an environment designed to promote comfort and convenience for patients and collaboration opportunities for physicians, scientists and other health care professionals.
It not only adds much-needed space for current research and treatment programs, but also allows for growth of these programs in the future.
