CHI St. Vincent Opens ARMOMS Clinics in South Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – CHI St. Vincent, a leading regional health network serving Central and Southwest Arkansas, announces the opening of 10 CHI St. Vincent ARMOMS Women’s Clinics across south Arkansas, which will offer vital, quality prenatal and postpartum care for pregnant women in underserved areas on select days throughout the week. Funded through a $4 million federal grant, the clinics will further CHI St. Vincent’s mission to provide accessible and quality healthcare throughout the state and to decrease high-risk pregnancy rates in south Arkansas.

“Every expecting mom should have access to quality care regardless of geography,”  CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs President Dr. Doug Ross said. “In many rural areas of the state, mothers have little to no access to prenatal and postpartum care. Through these clinics, we aim to change this reality and help establish the best possible beginning for the next generation as they enter the world.”

The 10 ARMOMS clinics are in Amity, Bearden, DeQueen, Fordyce, Glenwood, Hampton, Magnolia, Mt. Ida, Murfreesboro and Nashville. The clinics will offer prenatal, antenatal, postpartum care and gynecology services through a dedicated team of healthcare practitioners, including a nurse practitioner, registered nurse, family development specialist and data specialist. An OB/GYN oversees each clinic.

The ARMOMS program is a network of committed, rural healthcare partners coordinating a continuum of pregnancy services from pre-conception through postpartum. The program builds upon CHI St. Vincent’s Healthy Mom, Thriving Baby Project using proceeds from a $4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services for the next four years. The mission of ARMOMS is to decrease high-risk pregnancy rates across a 6,900-square-mile area, increase access to obstetric care, promote wellness and interrupt cycles of health inequity that lead to Arkansas’ exceptionally high rates of infant and maternal mortality.
