CHI St. Vincent Director of Oncology Services Dr. Peter Emanuel has been appointed as Vice-President of Oncology for the entire CommonSpirit Health system. Dr. Emanuel will continue in his leadership role growing the oncology program at CHI St. Vincent, which is part of CommonSpirit Health, while also serving as lead physician for CommonSpirit Health as it launches its first nationwide Oncology Clinical Institute.

“This is an incredible opportunity to positively impact the lives and improve the health of so many people, both here in Arkansas and around the country,” said Dr. Emanuel. “I’m honored to pursue that great work while also continuing to care for my patients and build this important program here in Central Arkansas.”

Dr. Emanuel, who is an internationally renowned oncologist and leading researcher of adult and pediatric forms of leukemia, joined CHI St. Vincent in 2018 to grow the healing ministry’s oncology program and expand cancer treatment options for its Arkansas communities. He previously worked with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, where he was director of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. His research has been consistently funded by the National Institutes of Health for more than 25 years and he is routinely named to the Castle Connolly “Best Doctors in America” list.

A Wisconsin native, Dr. Emanuel attended medical school at the University of Wisconsin and completed his internship and residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital. After a fellowship in hematology/oncology at UAB, he worked as a professor in the Department of Medicine, Genetics and Biochemistry at UAB. He was acting director of UAB’s Comprehensive Cancer Institute before going to UAMS in 2007.
