Conway Regional Medical Center

Winner, Best Hospital

AY's BestFor the past 100 years, Conway Regional has provided high-quality, compassionate care to the communities it serves. What started in 1921 with a donation of land to the city of Conway to establish a new hospital grew into a not-for-profit medical center with 60 beds by 1957.


Today, Conway Regional Health System provides comprehensive healthcare services to the growing communities of north-central and Central Arkansas and the River Valley. Conway Regional is an economic force in the community as one of Conway’s largest employers.


Centered on a 150-bed, acute care medical center, the health system provides patients with a variety of services including primary care, heart health, orthopedic care, neuro-spine surgery, vascular surgery, gastroenterology services, women’s health and surgery services. Additionally, the health system operates a Rehabilitation Hospital and a 70,000-square-foot Health and Fitness Center. In June 2019, Conway Regional announced a management agreement with the Dardanelle Hospital, and has since renamed it as Dardanelle Regional Medical Center.


In 2020, Conway Regional Medical Center became the third hospital in Arkansas to receive Magnet designation by the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC). Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and only 8 percent of hospitals nationwide achieve Magnet recognition status.


Conway Regional is an economic force in the community, with more than 225 physicians on the medical staff, more than 1,700 employees, and 100 community volunteers. Conway Regional team members and their families make Conway Regional one of Conway’s largest employers. The dedicated team members at Conway Regional uphold the organization’s mission by providing high-quality, compassionate care to those in the community, and they also work tirelessly to support their community outside of the hospital walls.
