Missouri-based health provider Mercy has broken ground on a new clinic in Fort Smith that will replace a location destroyed by a tornado in 2019.

The new clinic at 4600 Towson Ave. will be about 6,200 SF and provide primary care services such as wellness exams, flu shots and other vaccines, X-ray and lab services and more. Dr. Fareed Kannout, an internal medicine specialist with Mercy, will move his practice to the clinic, with additional providers expected to join. 

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Mercy to provide a primary care location that will be convenient for our patients ... Our goal is to provide easy access to state-of-the-art services for our patients, and we believe this new clinic will do just that," Dr. David Hunton, president of Mercy Clinic Fort Smith, said in a news release.

Mercy officials anticipate the new clinic will open in late 2023. New patients will be accepted.
