New Practice to Provide More Space, Additional Cancer Treatments to Prescott-Area Patients
Arizona Oncology, one of the largest cancer centers in Arizona with more than 70 physicians, will break ground on its new Prescott practice on Saturday, Sept. 24.
The new 22,000 square-foot comprehensive care center, located at 5430 Landmark Lane, Prescott, will provide radiation and chemotherapy services under one roof, as well as provide diagnostic imaging, surgery, genomic testing and more.
“Arizona Oncology is committed to evolving our practices to best fit the needs of our patients,” said Iyad Hamarneh, Medical Oncologist with Arizona Oncology. “While we’ve outgrown this facility, we look forward to growing with the Prescott community.”
Arizona Oncology plans to bring a 34-chair infusion area with outdoor garden space to the location. It will hire two additional doctors and medical teams, bringing additional collaboration between medical teams and patients. The facility will also include 15 total medical, gynecologic and radiation oncology exam rooms, along with a PET-CT imaging room. Future additions include two linear accelerators for external beam radiation treatments.
“Cancer is a tough disease to deal with alone, let alone the difficulties of navigating several different treatments at multiple facilities,” said Hamarneh. “This tends to be the ‘normal’ medical experience for patients. We wanted to change that experience into a more efficient process. In building a new facility, we’re able to provide all of our services under one roof so patients can experience more collaborative medical care.”
Arizona Oncology has been caring for the Prescott community for many years. Physician specialists currently practicing in Prescott who will transfer to the new location include Medical Oncologists and Hematologists Dr. Allan Espinoza, Dr. Iyad Hamarneh, Dr. Alan Langerak and Radiation Oncologist Dr. Marshall Davis.
Additionally, a welcoming staff of lab specialists, pharmacists, nutritionists and other medical professionals are there to create a seamless patient experience.
The Prescott office joins Arizona Oncology’s other statewide locations in Glendale, Goodyear, Green Valley, Phoenix, Prescott Valley, Scottsdale and Tucson.
