Saline Memorial Hospital (SMH) is a not-for-profit medical facility serving the western region of Arkansas. The full-service hospital has about 167 beds and provides inpatient and outpatient care in the areas of cardiology, neurology, otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat), ophthalmology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and wound care, among others. The hospital's campus also includes a sleep disorder laboratory, two separate medical office buildings, and a home health and hospice services center. In addition, SMH operates two primary care clinics in nearby Bryant.
In 2008, SMH renovated its emergency room, added a hospice care facility in Bryant, upgraded its cardiac center to include a catheterization (cath) lab, and added an inpatient kidney dialysis program. Before adding the inpatient dialysis and upgrading its cardiac center, patients often had to travel outside of the county -- usually to Little Rock -- for treatment in these areas. – less
