Cancer treatment center CARTI on Monday announced the opening of CARTI Urology and the acquisition of South Arkansas Urology in Pine Bluff. 

The medical team at CARTI Urology, which offers urology services for men and women, will include Dr. David C. Jacks, the Pine Bluff native who founded South Arkansas Urology in 1981. Terms of the purchase agreement were not disclosed.

CARTI Urology will be located in South Arkansas Urology’s office at 4303 S. Mulberry St. The office is undergoing renovations and is scheduled to open in February. In the meantime, doctors are seeing urology patients on the campus of the future CARTI Cancer Center in Pine Bluff, at 5001 Bobo Road. 

“With the opening of CARTI Urology, we’re expanding that by becoming the destination for general urologic services, plus bringing our own urologic specialist onto our surgical team to increase treatment options for patients diagnosed with these specific cancers,” CARTI President and CEO Adam Head said in a news release. “This expands our impact from only treating urologic cancer patients to also seeing patients who have not and may not ever have a cancer diagnosis, and is a demonstration of our steadfast commitment to providing the highest level of care across the state and greater region.”

Jacks is a clinical assistant professor of urology at UAMS in Little Rock and the UAMS-South Central Family Medicine Residency Program in Pine Bluff. He was a member of the Arkansas State Medical Board for 16 years and currently serves as expert reviewer. He serves on the Board of Trustees for the Arkansas Medical Society. And he’s been on the Arkansas State Legislative Oversight Committee on Prostate Cancer since 2001.

“I am honored to join CARTI’s team of surgeons and cancer specialists,” Jacks said. “Over the past 40 years, I’ve been fortunate to be able to treat patients from Pine Bluff and beyond. By joining CARTI, a respected cancer care provider, I’ll be able to expand my level of care by providing my patients with unparalleled access to comprehensive cancer care.”
