At its annual banquet, the Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce named CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs the large business of the year.
Hot Springs has been a member of the Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce since Jan. 1, 1967, and we have consistently served on the Chamber Board of Directors. Additionally we are a platinum sponsor of the Hot Springs Metro partnership seeking to further the economic development of our region.
We’ve had a number of “firsts” over our extensive history. From the first hospital in Garland County to the first million dollar hospital in Arkansas to dozens of “firsts” regarding health technology, Hot Springs has always been a pioneer in improving health. What began as a hospital has grown into an integrated health system including a 72 acre medical campus located in Hot Springs and physician practices throughout the greater Hot Springs area and reaching into our surrounding rural communities. Our heritage of partnering with physicians continues to this day as Hot Springs makes health care convenient by offering 28 clinic locations and more than 100 physicians and 44 mid-level providers in the Hot Springs region. They’re all connected by the most advanced patient electronic health record system available.
We are proud to be the most preferred provider of health care in the area and also offers the latest in technology, including the area’s only Level II Trauma Center, robotic surgery program and centers of excellence dedicated to heart and vascular services, cancer, diabetes, orthopedics, women’s services and wound care.
We view our mission to the community in several ways. Believing in the inherent dignity of each human being as a child of God, we strive to provide excellent and compassionate care in all our services. Our medical care attends to the well-being of the entire person: physically, socially and spiritually. Believing that health care is a basic human right and not simply a commodity, we provide care to anyone in need regardless of their ability to pay.
As an institution, we believe in collaboration. We work in concert with our physician partners and invite others to share in our healing ministry as both employees and volunteers. Working together, the medical staff, coworkers and volunteers are committed to providing, in an environment of Christian hospitality, health care which impacts the changing needs of the communities we serve.
