The History of National Park Medical Center

In 1954 the Ouachita Memorial Hospital was founded to meet the medical needs of Garland County and surrounding communities. National Park Medical Center replaced the old Ouachita Memorial Hospital and built a new main facility in 1985.

National Park Medical Center offers community focused healthcare services in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Since 1954, the people of National Park Medical Center have dedicated themselves to providing the highest quality of healthcare to the people of this area. Today, our physicians, nurses, and other professionals take great pride in our hospital’s inviting atmosphere and the quality of its services. Accredited by the Joint Commission, National Park Medical Center offers an extensive range of medical and surgical services.

National Park Medical Center is working hard to improve the health status of our community. We don’t wait for health problems to come to us. We work closely with organizations and individuals in the community to provide education about health and wellness, especially things that can be done to prevent or reduce the risk of serious health problems. Because your health is our top priority, we provide and participate in public health screenings, health fairs, seminars, education, and support groups.
