Dear staff and friends of Ashley County Medical Center,

We all have been faced with the COVID-19 pandemic and I am extremely proud of our team at ACMC and how they are responding. I have been impressed seeing the awesome teamwork during this time. We have had employees from other departments within the facility move around and work to do whatever was needed to help out. This shows a great testament to the kind of people we have as part of the ACMC Family. I am thankful for each team member and the job that they do to keep ACMC safe and running. I know the days our staff have been in PPE have been long and hard, but all staff have all been in my prayers and make me so proud.

We are excited to have Dr. Kara Worley, OB/GYN join us in April at Ashley Women’s Services! Dr. Worley joined us from Bradley County Medical Center. We are also excited to have Autumn Bennett, CNP, WHNP-BC, AGPCNP-BC who joined us in April at Ashley Women’s Services and Hamburg Health Clinic! We have big plans for our Women’s Services Clinic and excited to see it serve the women of southeast Arkansas for all of their needs.

Ashley Family Clinic will be undergoing some renovations to add Cheryl Rabalais, ANP and Pam Winston, ANP in this office to practice alongside Cyndi Bryan, FNP-C. Ashley Women’s Services and Ashley Pediatrics will be renovated to allow more space for our providers and patients in this building. Hamburg Health Clinic is also undergoing renovations. Both Hamburg Health Clinic and Ashley Family Clinic will be getting their parking lots paved. ACMC Wound Clinic has expanded to four days a week now seeing patients on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays.

The Board of Directors approved the purchase of two new chemistry analyzers for our Lab, three COVID-19 testing instruments, and new state of the art patient monitoring equipment for the hospital.

God is blessing us at ACMC! Please remember to stay safe and home if you can during this pandemic. Please remember to wash your hands, wear a mask as needed, and social distance.

-Phillip Gilmore, Ph.D, FACHE, CEO
