"Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an
exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's
work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared
with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit?
It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said the finest of Fine Arts."
A Note from Our Chief Nursing Officer
Ashley County Medical Center is a 33 bed Critical Access Hospital in Crosset AR. Nursing at ACMC is
a mixture of art and science. We offer specialty areas such as CCU/ICU,
Labor &Delivery, Nursery, Gero-Psych, Med-Surge and Emergency nursing
in addition to administering Chemotherapy. Nursing is a very rewarding
and dynamic profession. We feel it is important to be inspired and find
fulfillment in what we as nurses do. Regular employee and patient rounding
by Nurse Mangers ensures each person has a voice and their perspectives
are important. I would like to invite you to stay close to home for familiar
and qualified care. We would be honored to have you join our patient care
partnership at Ashley County Medical Center. Our nurses cater to patient
satisfaction and we as an organization cater to employee satisfaction.
Cutting edge technology in Radiology and Lab is available on site to provide
relevant and quality care in a rural community. Our mission statement reads:
To promote good health and provide quality healthcare with a qualified
staff in a caring and compassionate manner. Our commitment is toproviding the best facility for our patients, the
best environment for our nurses to provide care and the best place for
our physicians to practice. As a nurse, I find that it takes a holistic
approach to patients and staff to deliver the best care for patients and
their families. This idea is supported by ACMC and its commitment to providing
a culture of quality care with the expectation of positive outcomes.
We have made a lot of changes and are very excited. I want to invite you
to delve into our website and Facebook page for exciting opportunities
to have the best life possible. It doesn’t take a big hospital in
a big city to provide extraordinary care.
We are always looking for motivated, skilled and passionate Registered
Nurses to join us in serving our community and assisting your families
in their times of need. Times are changing and so are we.
