How has Conway Regional made an impact on the overall health of the communities you serve?
For more than 100 years, Conway Regional has provided high-quality, compassionate health care by offering innovative services, introducing new specialists and expanding access to care. From primary care to times when specialty care is needed, our world-class providers are here to take care of North Central Arkansas, Central Arkansas, and the River Valley.
During our lengthy history, we have overcome great challenges such as responding to the care needed after tornadoes, floods, and man-made disasters. In March 2020, our team faced another challenge: an unprecedented, global pandemic. Our team faced the new challenges presented by COVID-19 with innovation, collaboration, and resilience. From drive-thru testing to telemedicine appointments, to caring for patients with COVID-19, our team expanded and adapted operations to care for our community’s needs every step of the way.
The past year also offered opportunities for innovation and growth, including construction of a new state of the art intensive care unit, welcoming more than one dozen new physicians to our medical staff, and the opening of a new, three-story medical office building that marked the next step forward in our capital investment initiative to expand and enhance services to the community.
How are you making investments in shaping the future of health care?
Conway Regional offers family medicine and internal medicine residency programs for recent medical school graduates. These residency programs foster innovation while incorporating traditional family and internal medicine practices, outstanding specialty training, minor surgeries, obstetrical/gynecological care, and pediatrics into a dynamic educational process. The primary goal of each program is to equip future family and internal medicine practitioners with the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to provide exemplary patient care and positively impact the full spectrum of primary health care.
