Large Hospital Finalist: CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs
CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs

CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs is a full service medical center with a Level II Trauma Center designation and robust childbirth center in addition to advanced specialties in cancer treatment, orthopedics and heart care.

From its founding in 1888 by the Sisters of Mercy to today, CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs has worked to nurture the healing ministry of the Church while emphasizing human dignity, social justice and the creation of healthier communities.

As a nonprofit hospital, the CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs staff delivers compassionate care to the individuals and communities it serves, especially the poor and vulnerable. CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs serves not only the Hot Springs area but the entire southwest Arkansas region.

It also offers the thriving Anthony Childbirth Center which delivers more than 1,000 babies each year while introducing a 100% labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) model of care.

The model of care includes larger, private birthing suites that keep mother and child together from admission to discharge. In addition to increased opportunities for bonding, the model allows for hands-on education and instruction for new parents that includes training in couplet care, safe sleep practices and more.

Additionally, CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs offers advanced specialties including cancer treatment, orthopedics and heart care in coordination with the broader CHI St. Vincent medical group network of hospitals and clinics across the state.

CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs' accolades include a nationally accredited cancer center and American Heart Association/American Stroke Association recognized stroke care program. The hospital was recently named one of the Best Places to Work by Arkansas Business and is also working to ensure southwest Arkansas continues to have access to dedicated health care professionals by launching its first medical education residency program in cooperation with the Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine (ARCOM).

Under the leadership of Dr. Doug Ross, CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs has led the system's progress in quality and safety, including programs that led CHI St. Vincent to the 100th percentile nationally in patient safety scores and decreased hospital acquired infections by 75%.
