ARcare Our Story

Health For All.

Individualized Care For You.
Meet Our Providers

For over thirty years, ARcare has instilled commitment, compassion, and trust throughout Arkansas with 44 family practice clinics. Beginning in 1986 with Dr. Steven Collier’s unequivocal mandate to serve ‘the least, the last and the lost,’ ARcare has brought superior healthcare to patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

Though not a free clinic, ARcare is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) and is able to offer discounted rates so all Arkansans may receive the care they need.

We see patients with insurance, without insurance and those with not enough coverage. We see all who need healthcare.

With board-certified providers, community health centers and the very latest in medical technology, ARcare partners with our patients from rearing to retirement, assuring all members of the family are provided the absolute best in healthcare.


“Health for All” is ARcare’s mission.

With a focus on customer health, community health, employee health, and organizational health. Our “health for all” mission is at the core of every activity we pursue.


ARcare’s vision is to be the largest primary care provider in Arkansas, the provider of first choice in our communities and a national leader of community health centers.

ARcare’s values are to guide employees in providing superior service in fulfilling our mission and achieving our vision.

Stewardship – Valuing our resources daily to ensure our mission tomorrow.
Positive Attitude – Empowering employees to create an energetic work environment.
Integrity – Honesty, ethics, and dedication in all we do.
Respect – Appreciating all people, work, and ideas.
Improvement – Continually striving for performance excellence.
