Our staff is made up of rural residents who are on a mission to improve the health of their neighbors and the communities they live in.
“We want to change the destiny of rural hospitals across south Arkansas; survival isn’t enough. The script needs to be altered so that rural providers and health systems are recognized and sought out across the state and nation for their innovation, sheer determination, and resilience in the face of constant challenge."
ARHP has become a reference point and model for rural health innovation and collaboration across the state and nation. We are continuously looking for new ways to transform health systems in the areas of delivery systems, payment models, technology, workforce development, and more.
