Three clinic openings in three weeks makes for an exciting time at Mercy Northwest Arkansas. From downtown Rogers, to the heart of Centerton, to its first clinic in Washington County at Springdale, Mercy Northwest Arkansas continues marching forward with a commitment to making health care easily accessible across the region.
In the past year, Mercy has opened more than 50,000 square feet of expanded care with 36 new Mercy providers. The investment tips the $20 million mark and highlights the importance Mercy places on meeting the community’s health needs.
“Yes, it is a lot of rapid growth,” said Dr. Stephen Goss, president Mercy Clinic Northwest Arkansas. “However, it all comes down to one thing for us, what is best for the patient. Research shows people really do not want to drive more than 14 minutes to reach health care for their families. After analyzing traffic studies and growth within our community, we know the placement of each of these clinics will improve lives because we have improved accessibility and services for patients.”
