The Arizona Oncology Cancer Center is currently located at 3188 N. Windsong Dr. but will relocate once this project is complete. Core services offered will include medical oncology, surgical oncology, breast cancer treatment and diagnostics, urology, radiation therapies (including HDR), diagnostic imaging (CT/PET, CT) laboratory diagnostics, genomic testing and oncology research.

"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 our current facility, we look forward to growing with the Prescott community. When completed, our cancer center will be the only practice in the quad-city region that will offer medical oncology, radiation oncology and hematology services for our community."

Some of the features Arizona Oncology will have include 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.  The new building design also includes the ability to add up to two medical linear accelerators (LINAC) in the future to target and destroy cancerous cells in a precise area of a patient's body with minimal exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue.

"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 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 will be there to create a seamless patient experience.

"NexCore takes great pride in the development of these specialty centers for cancer care, as everyone has a friend, loved one, or an acquaintance that has suffered from cancer," NexCore Executive Vice President Real Estate Development Nathan Golik said. "Our team is excited to bring an advanced facility to help providers offer that next level of care to Prescott Valley and the surrounding communities."

For the Arizona Oncology Cancer Center, NexCore has assembled a qualified team of professionals including Corgan as the architect and Loven Contracting as the general contractor. NexCore will manage the day-to-day design and construction activities to meet budget, quality, and schedule objectives.
