CARTI’s mission is to promote the finest quality cancer treatment and compassionate care and to improve our knowledge through education and research.

We began fulfilling that mission in 1976, when we opened our doors to what was then known as Central Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute. As a single, centrally located treatment facility solely devoted to one modality of cancer treatment, namely radiation therapy, the cancer treatment institution grew quickly as convenient radiation therapy treatment facilities were opened throughout the state, adding facilities in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Conway, Searcy and Mountain Home.
