A hospital was established in Conway in 1921 when Col. John E. Little donated a tract of land to the city for a building site. In 1938 the hospital was organized as Conway Memorial Hospital, a non-profit corporation with seven board members. The hospital moved to its present location across the street from the original building in July of 1957, with 60 beds.
Today, Conway Regional Health System provides complete health care services to the growing communities of northern central Arkansas including Faulkner, Conway, Perry, Pope, Van Buren and Cleburne counties. Centered on a 150-bed, acute care medical center, the health system provides patients with a variety of services, such as:
