Centerton is one of the fastest growing communities in Northwest Arkansas, and Mercy’s new clinic located in the heart of it is open and ready to serve patients. Mercy Centerton J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Campus is 7,351 square-foot multispecialty facility.
The building houses five providers, including two internal medicine and two pediatric physicians, one family medicine doctor and two family medicine nurse practitioners. Mercy cardiologists will also see patients at this location and there are radiology and laboratory services on-site. The idea is to care for the whole family as conveniently as possible.
It’s why Dr. Lance Faddis has been serving Centerton since Mercy opened its first clinic there in the summer of 2004. “One of the reasons I enjoy family medicine is you get to know entire families and watch them grow over the years; that’s a connection we have with many in Centerton,” said Dr. Faddis. “With the new high school planned and many new families moving in, we feel this is perfect timing.”
Dr. Steve Goss, president of Mercy Clinics Northwest Arkansas says studies show making health care convenient is key to building a healthy region. “Driving only a couple of miles to see your family physician or one of our cardiologists is going to be a wonderful thing for our Centerton patients,” he said.
Once they arrive, patients will find a comfortable environment. “We learned that although patients want privacy, they also want to feel they are in an open environment,” said Goss. “This led us to use frosted glass doors between waiting areas and doctor patient areas. These small adjustments go a long way in patients being more relaxed and feeling at home.” Patients will also notice wider hallways and little touches reflective of Mercy’s faith- based mission.
The clinic is situated on 6.2 acres of commercial frontage property on Highway 102 at 1225 E. Centerton Boulevard; the land was generously donated by Ms. Johnelle Hunt.
