It’s a new year and a new name for Booneville Community Hospital. Effective January 1, 2014, Booneville Community Hospital becomes Mercy Hospital Booneville. Mercy has entered into a lease agreement... more with Booneville Community Hospital, Inc. that becomes official on New Year's Day. Mercy has managed the facility since October 2013.
“By being part of a larger system, we will work with the local team and commit the resources and expertise necessary to expand and enhance the delivery of care to the Booneville community,” said Ryan Gehrig, Mercy Hospital Fort Smith president. “Mercy’s goal is to make health care available close to home by bringing additional services and providers to the community.”
In addition to its faith-based values and reputation for excellence, Mercy brings to Booneville an array of resources that most community hospitals don’t have. These include an integrated supply chain that provides for value-based purchasing as well as important technology like an integrated electronic health record (EHR). An EHR makes patient information more readily available to physicians, which helps prevent unnecessary treatments and duplication of expensive tests. Mercy’s EHR will go-live in Booneville in June 2014.
Opened in 2008, the Booneville hospital includes 25 private patient rooms with a 24-hour emergency department. It offers an array of medical imaging services including x-ray, computerized tomography (CT), ultrasound and bone densitometry as well as laboratory services and specialty clinics.
Mercy Fort Smith already operates three critical access hospitals in Ozark, Paris and Waldron.
--5!NoStar!! HORRIBLE! Save yourself the trouble and get to a diffront ER!! If possible or wait & go to your primary physician. I WAS TREATED LIKE AN ADDICTED, TRYING TO GET HIGH!! ((Unjustly & Not Right!))... more There's somthing wrong with this ER or DOCTORS in Booneville, AR. It's unfare & not right!!! ER Doctors are able to see what meds your taking, how many visits you have done to the emergency room and even see who your primary physician is! RIGHT! so why can't the DR, DO or APRN make an educated decision on who is looking to get high or trying to get pills? IT'S NOT ME! They could/should make an educated guess by reading the paperwork they gave me at the end of my visit instead of pushing me out the door. After throwing up for 24 hours this is my review. I was treated HORRABLE!! completely inconsiderate of my health problem which is why I went to the ER to begin with! (AN EMERGENCY)They took long over an hour to be seen by Dunn, Jacky F, DO on 4/12/17 in the ER at Booneville. The entire time waiting I was crying, hurting in pain, DO Dunn said I had an infection. He would have the RN bring meds in to hopefully reduce my pain. "Wonderful I came to the ER because I desperately needed help that I could NOT fix myself" After 40 min my husband asked how much longer she's in a great deal of pain please help my wife. After 20 more min RN came in with diffront medication then Dunn DO originally told me and with my discharge paperwork to sign & let me go. THEY DID NOT EVEN WAIT TO SEE MY REACTION TO THE MEDICATION I WAS GIVEN!! Just pushed me out sent me home, me throwing up for over 24 hours should have been avoided! If they did there job! MOST AWFUL, Disgusting behavior of all, my husband and I over heard Dunn DO & the RN saying, "it's for her or her husband but they just want pain medication." COMPLETELY WRONG!!! and of they read my info on file/computer they would know that is not what I want, I needed help desperately. I have been to the ER twice over a couple years 1 of the 2 times they kept me overnight becouse of the great EMERGENCY needing to add blood with additional complications. Monthly I see a APRN and never filling any 'pain meds' or any narcotics and to be truthful after all my surgeries, I myself don't want any narcotics daily. I tell the doctors NO to pain meds & never any pain contract. It's been pushed on me by doctors. WHY WOULD ANYBODY IN YOUR ER JUST ASSUME I'M AN ADDICTED IN SEARCH OF DRUGS??? With NO good causes, I don't understand. I'm completely ferocious with the way I was treated, nobody should be treated like this when needing help!!! NOBODY!!!
