Mercy is going the distance to bring Paris Arkansas the kind of health care services that you would have to drive hours to receive. Our providers are people you know and trust, and they understand the value of strong community health care.

Our 16 bed critical access hospital serving Logan County in the Arkansas River Valley, offers the following services

Emergency Department

Our Emergency Department is a Certified Level IV Trauma Center. The physicians and nurses who provide emergency services are specially trained in emergency and trauma medical care. Our emergency services are available around-the-clock.

Case Management

There is life beyond your hospitalization, and we help you plan for it. Our case manager assists with discharge planning and in obtaining resources such as medication assistance, physician follow ups, access to free clinics, or financial assistance information.

Therapy Services

Mercy offers a full range of physical therapy for both adults and children. These services are provided by an experienced, licensed team of therapists.

Imaging and Laboratory Services

Mercy’s imaging department features state-of-the-art equipment and provides the following services:

  • CT Scan
  • Ultrasound
  • Diagnostic Radiology
  • Traditional x-ray

The lab offers a wide variety of testing and analysis to assist physicians in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of disease and illness.

Respiratory Care

Our respiratory care department provides support to patients with acute/chronic onset respiratory disease. This team provides pulmonary function testing, arterial blood gases, BiPAP and oxygen management.

Dietary Department

A dietitian is available to conduct comprehensive nutritional assessments for inpatients to identify goals for improving nutritional intake and health.

Individualized care plans are designed to meet the patient’s specific medical and lifestyle needs. Nutrition education is provided to patients, as needed, in areas such as diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, cholesterol, hypertension and weight management.

Mercy Paris offers free diabetic education classes, provided by a certified diabetic educator.


The Pharmacy Department provides medications and supplies to all patient care areas within the hospital, while having processes in place to ensure safety and security of medications.

Inpatient Services

Our ultimate goal is to keep you in good health and out of the hospital. But, when you need us, our staff uses the latest technology to care for you. All of our units use central telemetry monitoring so we can keep a close eye on our patients. We also use an electronic health record to tightly coordinate and manage your care. Every unit also provides inpatient therapy services. 

Outpatient Services

We offer the following outpatient services: physical therapy, home health, wound care and outpatient procedures including colonoscopy, endoscopy and general surgery.


Perhaps one of our most open frontiers in improving health care is in telemedicine. It is a key solution to the declining supply and rising demands for physicians.

Wound Care

Some wounds need special care. Especially wounds that may be related to diabetes, vascular disease and other conditions, because these wounds can take longer to heal.
