The Sevier County Medical Center is a critical access hospital located in DeQueen, Arkansas. The facility is approximately 42,442 square feet in size and includes 6 private rehab beds, 8 inpatient beds, 10 bed full-service Emergency Room, an Outpatient clinic, and Radiology imaging to include MRI, CT, X-Ray, mammography, and ultra-sound. The facility is designed with centralized nursing stations in each of the patient care areas to provide exclusively patient focused care. Patients may enter through the front lobby or the Emergency Room. The medical staff include board certified Emergency Room Physicians, General Practice Physicians, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, and Physician Assistants. Other consulting services are also available. The design of the facility promotes staff efficiency by minimizing distance between frequently used spaces. The location of support services allows for sharing through adjacent functional areas, minimizing risk of infection and positively impacting patient flow. The entire facility is served by an emergency generator, so that in the event of a power loss, air conditioning and heating will not cease, as well as other vital electrical services. The facility is constructed in compliance with regulations of Arkansas State Department of Health, CMS, and plans to apply for accreditation by The Joint Commission. In a state where rural health care is of the utmost importance, it is Sevier County’s desire to increase access and convenience to a critical access hospital. This hospital will not only increase access, but it will also do so with the lowest cost and highest quality of care.
