Overview

CommonSpirit Health was formed by the alignment of Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and Dignity Health. With more than 700 care sites across the U.S. & from clinics and hospitals to home-based care and virtual care services CommonSpirit is accessible to nearly one out of every four U.S. residents. Our world needs compassion like never before. Our communities need caring and our families need protection. With our combined resources CommonSpirit is committed to building healthy communities advocating for those who are poor and vulnerable and innovating how and where healing can happen both inside our hospitals and out in the community.

 

We believe staying healthy is a group effort. That together we can make feeling good contagious. By energizing our communities, we bring you care that’s more than just medicine. We treat your mind, body and spirit. We’ve been answering this call since 1888, when our founding sisters established hospitals in Little Rock and Hot Springs. Today, we’re stronger than ever. 

 

Consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as high performing in medical services, our system of care includes four hospitals as well as primary care and specialty clinics throughout Arkansas. While we appreciate the praise, we’re most thankful for truly extraordinary coworkers and medical staff who are living our mission by providing excellent and compassionate care.
