Episode 61: Rising Up When the Local Hospital Shuts Down

by Aledade

In this episode of The ACO Show, Joe speaks with Dr. Randy Walker and Angie Walker of the Walker Family Clinic in De Queen, Arkansas. 

They describe how they were able to expand staffing and operating hours at their independent primary care clinic to enable more patients to receive the care they need—and how this has prepared them for the COVID-19 outbreak they are facing right now.

They also discuss how they were able to step in and serve their community’s health needs when the only critical access hospital in the area suddenly shut down.
