Home > Newsroom > ArkPrepare: COVID-19

Hospitals in Arkansas are working together to effectively respond to the novel coronavirus – and the illness it causes, COVID-19. We encourage all Arkansans to be proactive by safeguarding not only their own health but also the health of their neighbors and of the wider health care system.

As more information becomes available about this rapidly evolving situation, we will update this page. We also encourage everyone to stay up-to-date on evidence-based guidance from the Arkansas Department of Health and CDC. 

Arkansas has a long history of rising to meet the challenges of epidemic disease. Hospitals are the heart and hands of many of our state’s communities, and we take this role very seriously. We are proud to be part of a statewide community of support and care facing the outbreak as a united front.

Your hospitals are here for you.
