Arkansas Methodist Medical Center is A Beacon of Health, Hope and Healing and for more than 60 years, AMMC has been committed to improving the lives of residents throughout Northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri. However, our focus is not just fighting illness but preventing it all together. We strive to provide the latest education and wellness tools that keep you and your family healthy.
Our pledge remains stedfast despite unprecedented economic struggles here at home and throughout the nation. These times, combined with healthcare reform and reimbursement cuts, have required that all hospitals aggressively examine their bottom lines. Nevertheless, Arkansas Methodist is weathering these challenges far better than most hospitals. Strong leadership and financial management from generations of past and present board members have positioned us to continue providing comprehensive, compassionate healthcare to those who need us most. In fact, just this year, construction began on Chateau on the Ridge, a continuing care retirement community. Massive planning and infrastructure development have been completed allowing contractors to begin work on this community, which will truly change senior lives. In addition, extensive planning has resumed on development of a patient tower at our medical center campus. Both of these major projects will have an extensive impact on healthcare and the entire economic landscape of the region.
Overall, the true measure of a healthcare system lies within the quality of services it provides. Thanks to our physicians and staff, the level of care provided at AMMC is regularly unmatched in governmental ratings and patient satisfaction surveys. This equals a mark of quality often unachieved by much larger healthcare providers.
For six decades and for years to come, our unwavering commitment to the future is to continue to provide health and wellness services that individually improve lives so that our communities can grow and prosper. That's been our common thread of caring since 1949. Thank you for the confidence you place in us.
