Meanwhile, the only CARTI centers closing are the CARTI Hematology/Oncology centers located on the Baptist Health campus (formerly Little Rock Hematology Oncology) and at 9101 Kanis Road (formerly Hematology Oncology Services of Arkansas).

In December 2011, the nonprofit CARTI was treating about 3,000 patients a year.
