Our charitable medical clinic has a fully stocked pharmacy on-site and fills prescription at no cost to individuals. Eligibility requires that an individual have no form of health insurance, including Medicaid and Medicare. Our clinic is located at #1 Medical Drive, Paragould, AR 72450.

Assistance Programs: Our benevolent services offer rent, utility, fuel and prescription assistance. Individuals must first qualify and be approved by our benevolent services manager and are eligible for assistance once every 12 months.
