“We are excited to begin this partnership with the City of Little Rock to bring our quality health care services to this community,” said Healthy Connections, Inc., CEO Tony Calandro. “We are proud to provide primary care services to patients in all stages of life, including newborns, children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.”

West Central Health Clinic will provide primary care/family medicine services to patients of all ages through an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). This may include preventative medicine, care for common illnesses, care for chronic conditions, healthcare screenings, physicals, immunizations, and more. Additionally, WCHC will offer mental-health therapy and medication management through Evolve Behavioral Health. These providers will include both a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (APRN PMHNP).

West Central Health Clinic features three state-of-the-art exam rooms to care for our patients and will be open Monday through Friday.

West Central Health Clinic is part of the Healthy Connections Community Health Network. As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), the clinic will accept most health insurances, including Medicaid, ARKids 1st, and Medicare. The clinic also has a sliding-fee scale for patients without insurance. Qualified families will be charged according to their total family income and the total number of persons living in the household. This sliding-fee scale allows many to receive treatment who might not have otherwise been able to afford it.

Healthy Connections is a Mena-based nonprofit organization serving the needs of children and adults throughout West-Central Arkansas. Since its founding in 1998 as a home-visiting program, Healthy Connections has been able to provide much-needed health, dental and social services to families of every lifestyle.

West Central Health Clinic is the second Little Rock location for Healthy Connections. The Little Rock Midtown clinic, located at 1100 N. University Ave., Suite 200, offers services including primary care, behavioral health, women’s health, Medication-Assisted Treatment for opioid addiction, HIV/AIDS treatment and care, and hormone replacement therapy, rheumatology, and more. Depending on the location, Healthy Connections also offers dental, podiatry, cardiology, and pediatrics services. These locations include Bryant, Hot Springs, Malvern, Arkadelphia, Hot Springs Village, Russellville, Mount Ida, Mena, and De Queen.
