Mercy Clinic is pleased to announce the opening of its third built-from-the-ground-up primary care location in the last two years.
The new Mercy Clinic Primary Care – Free Ferry is located at the corner of Free Ferry and Waldron in Fort Smith. The $5 million, 13,650 square foot primary care clinic includes 24 exam rooms with onsite lab and imaging services. It is built in the same style as the Dallas Street location that opened in November 2012 and the Cliff Drive location that opened in August 2014.
“Mercy Clinic laid out plans for this aggressive building strategy in 2010 because there simply wasn’t enough access to primary care in our region,” said Matt Keep, Mercy Clinic chief operating officer. “Since the opening of the Dallas Street location two years ago, Mercy Clinic has more than doubled the number of patients seen in the primary care setting from 5,200 each month to 11,000. We are excited that this new facility will allow us to serve even more patients and move us closer to our ultimate goal of a healthier population in our area.”
Mercy Clinic Free Ferry will open with the seven providers listed below. Patients can make appointments with any of them by calling the clinic at 479-221-9922.
