CEO's Message


CEO's Message

Welcome to Bradley County Medical Center. As I start my 29th year in healthcare in Arkansas, I am proud to be a part of this hospital. We have a lot of history with our community and if you take the time to read the BCMC History on our website you will see that we have grown and adapted to the changing times over the last six decades.

And while there has been much change during those decades, the pace of change in the healthcare world has never been greater or faster than it is today. From giant leaps in technology to a constantly changing regulatory environment that governs what healthcare is and can be.

Because of this dynamic pace of change, what healthcare will look like in the next decade is anyone's guess at this point. But what I can tell you about the next decade is our continuing commitment to you and the communities we serve.

We shall continue to strive to meet your healthcare needs. To bring new and improved diagnostic tests and tools to the community to promote your well-being. To find new ways to make your healthcare more affordable and more accessible. To ensure that there is adequate primary care physician coverage and specialists to support them. To be here when you need us - this is our commitment to you.

And to be at our best when you need us the most - this is my commitment to you.

Steve Henson
CEO

National Donor Day is Feb. 14; Shares Observance Date with Most Caring Holiday of the Year

During the month of February, nothing says "I'm thinking of you" and "I care" more than a greeting card adorned with hearts and flowers; nothing, except a drivers' license or state ID card imprinted with the phrase "organ donor."
February 14th is National Donor Day in Arkansas, and across America. On this day donation partners, including ARORA, transplant centers and hospitals, take this opportunity to raise awareness of the life-saving and life-enhancing benefits of organ, tissue and eye donation. National Donor Day is also a time to encourage everyone to register to become a donor. In Arkansas, it is easy to register by logging onto arora.org, or by visiting any local Department of Motor Vehicles office when applying for or renewing a driver's license or state identification card.
