Welcome to Ouachita County Medical Center
OCMC is committed to providing quality care to our patients in a safe, confidential and friendly environment. Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive service and care. Whether your needs are for maternity services, employer/work related care, treatment for substance abuse, geriatric psychiatric services, home care or hospice, we look forward to exceeding your expectations. You, the patient, play a vital role in making your care safe and efficient by becoming an active, involved and informed member of the health care team.
If you have concerns or complaints about any aspect of your care, safety, or the services provided to you or your family, please let us know. You may speak with any member of our staff – your nurse, Hospital Administrator, Administrator on Call, Nursing Supervisor, or the Patient Advocate. Your nurse can assist you in contracting any of the above or you may call the Switchboard Operator by dialing “0” and ask the Operator to assist you in contacting the person with whom you wish to speak. We value the opportunity to help resolve any issue while you, or your family member, are still in the hospital. If you have concerns about patient care or safety that you feel the hospital has not addressed, please contact my office at (870) 836-1200. If I am unavailable, a member of my staff will be available to assist you. (After normal business hours please contact the Switchboard Operator at (870) 836-1000, or dial “0” if you are using a phone in the patient’s room, and the Operator will contact me or the Administrator on Call to speak with you immediately). If, however, you feel your concerns cannot be resolved through the hospital, you may contact the Joint Commission at
Thank you for choosing Ouachita County Medical Center for your healthcare needs. I offer you my best wishes for a full and complete return to health.
Peggy L. Abbott, President
