Building On a Strong Foundation

Over the years, our values as communicators have continually guided us as we seek to earn our readers’ respect.

You will notice a distinctive change in design with this Spring edition as we move forward with a fantastic new publishing collaboration with Vowell, Inc., the publishers of AY Magazine. What hasn’t changed is our continuing dedication to those long-held essential values of communication honesty.

Vicki Vowell and our other new colleagues at Vowell, Inc. share our dedication to providing you, our readers, with a great print magazine and a beautiful design.

We also look forward to working with the Vowell, Inc. team to offer eye-catching and informative online pieces for your reading pleasure between each quarterly printed publication. Yes, Virginia, we’ve finally gone digital!

The focus for this edition is one of extreme importance in our state and across the country – mental and behavioral health care. It is fitting that our Spring edition is hitting the streets at the conclusion of a legislative session in which mental and behavioral health has been a huge focus.

The World Health Organization has said that “there is no health without mental health.”

We at the Arkansas Hospital Association agree. Without mental health, we cannot reach our full potential as productive members of society. And so, this topic is important not only for our hospitals, but also for each and every person in the communities they serve.

All of us at the Arkansas Hospital Association look forward to continuing to offer you a top-notch publication each quarter, and we would love to hear from you about your ideas and thoughts on the new design. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this first edition of 2017.

Thank you for reading!
