1 min read

J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. of Lowell has donated $2.5 million to the Washington Regional Medical Foundation. 

The money will be used to enhance and expand the Washington Regional Medical System’s neurological and cancer support services.

In recognition of the gift, Washington Regional’s Northwest Arkansas Neuroscience Institute will be named the J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. Neuroscience Institute. The new Washington Regional Cancer Support Home will also be named for the company. 

J.B. Hunt’s donation will fund research, an expanded stroke program, facility updates, new technology and specialized physicians and nurses. 

Washington Regional said its new Cancer Support Home, on East Longview Street in Fayetteville, is expected to be completed in late 2020. It will provide the same services as its current home but with additional amenities including eight overnight guest rooms with private bathrooms, an elevator and an expanded wig and prosthesis boutique. Overnight lodging and all CSH services will continue to be available at no cost to cancer patients and their families.
