The Healthy Connections clinic at the Franklin Community Health Center is a family medical clinic that is a part of our community health network. This clinic offers primary care/family medicine with both a physician and APRN on site. They can handle everything from preventative medicine to check-ups and physicals, along with more serious illnesses.

We’re proud of Healthy Connections Franklin, our first Little Rock clinic, and its location at the former Franklin Elementary School in the heart of the Oak Forest neighborhood.

The current clinic is a temporary structure that will be replaced once Community Health Centers of Arkansas completes the Franklin Community Health Complex, which has a mission to bring the community an array of programs essential to building community health.

Healthy Connections has been selected as the healthcare provider for the Franklin Community Health Complex in Little Rock.

The Franklin Complex, which will be housed in the former Franklin Elementary School Building, will bring essential health programs to the community. CHCA bought the Franklin building last year.

The Franklin Project is really the culmination of everything we’ve done everywhere else in Arkansas,” said Healthy Connections CEO Tony Calandro. “There is a significant need in that patient population that surrounds the Franklin Project. When you look at that patient population, you’re looking at patients who have not been able to access quality, affordable healthcare.”
