Baxter Regional Medical Center (BRMC), located in Mountain Home, Arkansas, serves patients from a two-state, 14-county area throughout north-central Arkansas and south-central Missouri. Opened as Baxter General Hospital in 1963, the acute-care hospital began with 39 beds and four physicians on staff. Today, the facility is a 268 all-private bed facility with more than 100 physicians on staff. The hospital encompasses 500,000 square feet of space and is the largest employer in Baxter County with over 1,400 employees and over 600 volunteers.
In addition to the main hospital facility, BRMC operates seventeen area clinics serving the healthcare needs of patients from birth to seniors in a variety of specialties including Orthopaedics, Women’s Health, Cardiovascular Surgery, Nephrology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Pulmonology, Rheumatology, Urology, Geriatrics and Family Medicine. BRMC affiliates include Baxter Regional Home Health, Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation, Hospice of the Ozarks and Baxter Regional Wound Healing Center.
Baxter Regional is the region’s premier healthcare facility, utilizing the most advanced technology such as the state’s first 3-D Mammogram, the nation’s first 3-D Mobile Mammography Unit, superD Navigation System, the da Vinci® Surgical System and 3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
With numerous patient satisfaction awards, Baxter Regional is committed to providing excellent care for every patient, every time and preserving BRMC as a comprehensive, independent, community-driven health system in order to optimize access to quality healthcare for patients in the communities we serve.
The contract between Baxter Regional Medical Center/Baxter Regional PHO, Ltd. (a Physician Hospital Organization consisting of Baxter Regional Medical Center, 18 BRMC clinics, 21 independent physician clinics/medical groups and 5 facilities; with a total of approximately 96 member PHO physicians) and Humana Medicare Advantage will be terminated effective December 31, 2015.
Patients with Humana Medicare Advantage are being notified of this decision and are being provided with information to help them make an informed decision about their healthcare insurance provider. Baxter Regional Medical Center will still accept Humana Medicare Advantage insurance, but BRMC will be considered “out of network,” so the patient portion of the bill will increase.
