State-of-the-Art Cancer Center Launches New Look as it Experiences Resurgence in Growth

Arizona Oncology, one of the largest cancer treatment centers in the state with more than 50 physicians, has unveiled a new brand inspired by its desert home.

Arizona Oncology is proud to move into the future with a reinvigorated purpose and refreshed look. The launch comes alongside a resurgence in growth for the cancer center, which has brought new patients, employees and sites of service for the 24-year-old clinic, including new or increased presence in Goodyear, Oro Valley and Scottsdale.

Inspired by a barrel cactus blossom, the new logo paints a picture of the desert in bloom. Viewed from above, the cactus logo provides a different perspective and promises a holistic approach to cancer care. The green petals represent the Arizona Oncology community of highly specialized care providers, researchers and staff working together to deliver better cancer care today for a brighter tomorrow. The orange flower at the center reflects Arizona Oncology’s patient-centered approach and its commitment to improving the lives of its patients.

In addition to a new look and logo, Arizona Oncology has announced its newest tagline, “Thrive with and beyond cancer.” The tagline embodies Arizona Oncology’s commitment to not only providing leading-edge treatments backed by the most rigorous science, but also to compassionate care — not just treating the cancer, but the person as a whole.

“Thriving is not the same as surviving,” said Joseph Buscema, MD at Arizona Oncology. “Our care puts a health focus on our patients’ quality of life before, during and after treatment, allowing them to truly thrive. Arizona Oncology puts a focus on the person as a whole — their life, their story, their future. We maintain the highest quality cancer care in healthcare because of this humanistic approach.”
