The Arkansas Cancer Coalition recently awarded Mainline Health Systems, Inc. a $55,000 grant to implement cancer control efforts that support the Arkansas Cancer Plan.

Mainline will use the funds to maximize technology capabilities within the EMR (electronic medical record) to recall patient populations due for breast, colorectal, and cervical cancer screenings.

Mainline, which serves Ashley, Bradley, Chicot, Cleveland, Desha, Drew and Lincoln counties at 19 locations in Southeast Arkansas, has been awarded the Arkansas Cancer Coalition Grant every year since 2018.

We are honored to receive this grant, and even more so the trust of the Arkansas Cancer Coalition, every year since 2018,” said Mainline CEO Allan Nichols. “Cancer touches us all and we work diligently to beat it every way possible. Early diagnosis is the key and these funds are targeted at just that in order to find it early and save lives.”

Mainline was also awarded the Arkansas Cancer Coalition Partner Award.

“MHSI was delighted and honored to be awarded the ACC Outstanding Partner Award at the 22nd Annual Arkansas Cancer Summit,” said Mainline Chief Quality Officer Jeni Barham. “The ACC Outstanding Partner Award is awarded to member organizations that have demonstrated excellence in their commitment to advancing the goals and objectives of the Arkansas Cancer Plan.”

The Arkansas Cancer Coalition’s mission is to facilitate and provide partnerships to reduce the human suffering and economic burden from cancer for the citizens of Arkansas. The coalition provides an overview of the current status of cancer control in Arkansas, maintains a plan of cancer control goals and strategies, and improves the quality of life for those persons affected by cancer.

Mainline Health Systems’ mission is to provide compassionate, quality care for everyone, regardless of ability to pay. It provides health care services at 19 locations in Southeast Arkansas.
