Walnut Ridge Hospital Recognized by National Healthcare Publication

MAY 18, 2004 - Posted at 2:06 p.m. CDT

 

WALNUT RIDGE, AR - Leaders at Walnut Ridge's Lawrence Memorial Hospital were named today as the Top Leadership Team in Healthcare for Small Hospitals by HealthLeaders Magazine, a national publication geared toward the healthcare industry.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed critical access facility that is owned by Lawrence County.  The facility was headed toward bankruptcy and closure in the mid-1990s, but its leaders sparked a revival that resulted in the hospital growing and thriving in a small, rural community that is not growing.

"The senior leadership team at Lawrence Memorial epitomizes what can be done when leaders work together as a team to make the delivery of healthcare better for patients and their families," said Scott McQuigg, president and publisher of HealthLeaders, an award-winning monthly magazine.

Lawrence Memorial will be featured in a future article of the magazine.

Lee Gentry serves as the hospital's president.
