St. Vincent in Little Rock Recognized
for Service to Hispanic Community


St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center, part of St. Vincent Health System, Little Rock, Ark., has been named the "number one hospital in Arkansas" by a state-wide Hispanic newspaper, El Latino. St. Vincent’s Hispanic Customer Initiatives Task Force addresses the health care needs of the growing Hispanic population in Arkansas and meets the needs of the system’s Spanish-speaking employees. The system also uses a resource/referral hotline with bilingual staff who help Spanish-speaking callers set up physician appointments and request literature on a variety of health topics.
