Beebe's Tunnell Cancer Center

Healing minds, bodies, and spirits every day

Life can change in an instant. One moment you are engaged in your life and healthy; the next instant you receive a cancer diagnosis. In that instant, you need expert care and guidance. 

Here at Beebe’s Tunnell Cancer Center thousands of people and their family members come through our doors; many remain our dear friends to this day. That's because a high percentage of cancer patients recover from their disease and lead active lives. More than ever, medical science offers treatments and therapies that can help people triumph over cancer.

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) has granted Three-Year Accreditation to the cancer program at The Robert & Eolyne Tunnell Cancer Center at Beebe Healthcare. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care. 

Because it is a CoC-accredited cancer center, Tunnell Cancer Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer as a complex group of diseases that requires consultation among surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, and other cancer specialists. This multidisciplinary partnership results in improved patient care.  

Tunnell Cancer Center has received reaccreditation by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).  The QOPI® Certification Program (QCP™) provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet nationally recognized standards for quality cancer care.
