Conway Regional Health System is honored to have been asked by the Yell County Board of Governors to assume management operations of the Dardanelle Hospital, which effective June 1, 2019, will be known as Dardanelle Regional Medical Center.

Although the name is new, the commitment to providing the community with a broad suite of health services and quality health care has not wavered.

“Our two hospitals share a mission of providing quality health care to the communities we serve. First and foremost, our focus is to be encouraging and supportive for a vibrant future for the Dardanelle community,” said Matt Troup, president and CEO of Conway Regional Health System. “As we enter into this management arrangement, our primary objective in the early days is to ensure we safely provide patient care. We will assess any areas in Dardanelle Regional Medical Center that need support and will provide that, beginning with the Emergency Department and the Dardanelle Family Clinic, which will combine the former Primary Care Practice at 215 N 4th Street with the outpatient clinic at the Medical Center.”

The Dardanelle Regional Medical Center team is committed to the “One Team. One Promise.” commitment shared with Conway Regional, and will work cohesively to provide quality and unmatched patient care to every person who enters our doors.
