Welcome to McGehee Hospital

“Thank you for trusting your healthcare to us. No place works harder to make your outcome the best it can be with great staff and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.

But what does that look like? What can I expect when I visit McGehee Hospital?

We are not going to let you down, because you are important to us. You can expect to be treated with respect as an individual based on your own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. You can expect your needs to be met with welcoming and comfort, with easy access and with convenience. You can expect the highest level of training and compassion from your physicians, nurses and other healthcare staff. You can expect your questions to get answers. You can expect your outcome to be the best possible.

You can expect employees to show initiative, dedication, love and talent. The highest level of performance from all employees is always expected, but never at the expense of our values. You can expect our staff members to give their best at all times to ensure that you recover from your illness or injury or that you will regain skills in rehabilitation or we may even save your life.

In 1965 McGehee Hospital began serving the communities in Desha and parts of five surrounding counties. Now with new hospital wings, a new family clinic and new state-of-the-art equipment, we’re prepared to bring up-to-date healthcare to our patients and their families now and in the future.

Our community raised $6,078,956 to fund the new hospital wing and new clinic through the Share the Pride campaign to support enhanced services and programs. Most are already in place and serving you. There are over 100 professionals committed to our mission of improving your healthcare experience and the quality of your life.

As the President and Chief Executive Officer at McGehee Hospital I invite you to trust us with your healthcare and that of your family. I am confident that you will be pleased.”
