Highlands Oncology began in 1996 with three physicians and a desire to change the face of oncology care in our community.  Dr. Malcolm Hayward, Dr. Dan Bradford, and Dr. Thad Beck knew that patients do better at home, in the community where they live and work, and where their support system is already in place. In furthering that goal, Highlands has grown with the region from a single location 26 years ago, to 6 locations in Northwest and Northcentral Arkansas today employing more than 700 diverse team members.

As Northwest and Northcentral Arkansas continues to grow, so must the services and providers available in the region.  Highlands Oncology is committed to remaining on the cutting edge to ensure our community has access to the very best cancer care.  What we have is something quite unique right here in our own backyard with a caring multidisciplinary team focused on treating patients as family.
