Our Staff

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 believe that residents across south Arkansas should not live shorter or poorer quality lives largely because they live in a rural setting." - Mellie Bridewell

We envision a future where all south Arkansas residents can enjoy access to excellent healthcare providers and experience quality health outcomes no matter their socioeconomic background, gender, ethnicity, and where they choose to live and work.
