Fort Myers, Fla. & Hot Springs, Ark., Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Genesis Cancer Center (Genesis), serving Hot Springs and surrounding communities in oncology/hematology, recently unveiled new branding in response to patient needs. For over 30 years, Genesis has provided the highest quality cancer care customized for the needs of each individual patient and will continue to deliver that same level of care and personalization in ten locations throughout southern and central Arkansas.
At the heart of this rebranding is a change of the practice name to Genesis Cancer and Blood Institute. The Genesis name is rooted in the practice’s commitment to hope, compassionate patient care and comprehensive state-of-the-art treatment.
“We believe the new name is a better reflection of what we offer to our patients, referring providers and the communities we serve,” said Genesis Cancer and Blood Institute Medical Oncologist and founder Dr. Timothy Webb. He added, “We go beyond the cancer diagnosis, consulting for benign and malignant hematology, including blood banking, clotting abnormalities, immunology and infusion services for the newer targeted and immunological treatments available in GI, Dermatology and Rheumatology issues.”
Genesis also offers many conveniences for the patient, providing radiology scans on campus, participation in the largest access to clinical trials and investigational studies through a partnership with Sarah Cannon Research Institute and the benefits of Our Promise Cancer Resource, a nonprofit that Genesis created over 10 years ago, donating $1.2 million dollars to help ease the burden of patient expenses while they undergo treatment.
AON CEO Todd Schonherz added, “Although the Genesis rebrand brings a new identity, the level of care will not change. Genesis remains committed to bringing expert cancer care and treatments close to where patients and their support systems live.”
Genesis is part of the American Oncology Network (AON)—a leading physician network helping community oncologists have greater access to more resources so patients get top-level cancer care within their communities.
