CHI St Vincent




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.

CHI St Vincent Infirmary - Little Rock, AR

With more than 600 licensed beds, CHI St. Vincent Infirmary is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization serving the health care needs of Arkansans, including patients from all 75 counties. We've been consistently named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the state's best hospitals, with high performance in heart care, colorectal surgery, and joint replacement. As well, our team has achieved the highest recognition for nursing, Magnet designation.

CHI St Vincent - Hot Springs, AR

In 1888, two vitally important developments occurred in the history of Arkansas health care. A pair of pioneering hospitals both opened: St. Vincent Infirmary in Little Rock and St. Joseph’s in Hot Springs. In 2014, St. Joseph's became part of CHI St. Vincent and changed its name to reflect the new partnership. With more than 300 licensed beds, CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization serving the health care needs of Hot Springs, Ark., and surrounding communities. We also have a Level 2 Trauma Center & Rehabilitation Hospital on our South Campus in partnership with HealthSouth.

CHI St Vincent North - North Little Rock, AR

CHI St. Vincent North in Sherwood opened in October 1999. The hospital offers private rooms and serves the community with 24-hour emergency service. More than 200 coworkers and physicians at the facility provide medical care for Sherwood, North Little Rock, Jacksonville and surrounding communities. We share the campus with the CHI St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital.

In 2017, we announced plans to relocate the Arkansas Neurosciences Institute from the Infirmary in Little Rock to our North campus. In 2019, this vision became a reality when our neurosurgical teams completed intense preparations and began using the newly renovated intensive care units, surgical suites and other spaces.

CHI St Vincent Morrilton - Morrilton, AR

Originally called St. Anthony’s, the Benedictine sisters at St. Scholastica Monastery established St. Anthony’s Hospital as a fourteen-bed facility on December 4, 1925, initially using a private home belonging to the Burrows family of Morrilton. Almost one hundred years later, St. Anthony's evolved into CHI St. Vincent Morrilton. CHI St. Vincent Morrilton has provided quality, convenient care to its community for decades. Being part of CHI St. Vincent means that the community has direct access to many centers of excellence, including our Heart Institute and Neuroscience Institute.
