Cline Emergency Center

When Every Second Counts, Count on Us

When you or a family member needs critical care, time is precious. That’s why the Cline Emergency Center at Baxter Regional Medical Center is better and faster than ever before. With a newly renovated, more comfortable waiting room for families, more beds and a new, streamlined method of treating patients, valuable seconds are never wasted.

Our Team is Always Ready to Act

Every second counts in an emergency and to make sure everyone in the North Central Arkansas/South Central Missouri region has access to critical medical care at a moment’s notice, we have created a fast-acting ambulance and paramedic operation that can quickly provide care to Baxter and Marion Counties. These services also extend to Izard, Fulton, Searcy, and Ozark Counties as a mutual aid responder in case of wide-spread emergencies.

Our team is prepared to provide emergency care quickly the event of:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Heart attack
  • Falling unconscious
  • Severe, nonstop bleeding
  • Excessive vomiting
  • Poisoning
  • Severe abdominal pains
  • Any other potentially life-threatening conditions

In the event of a stroke, we are a participant of the Arkansas SAVES program, meaning we have a neurologist ready to go at all times to treat patients during the “golden hour” of a stroke.

Holistic Care for Patients and Families

A sudden, unexpected emergency does more than just physical harm—it can be emotionally damaging and take a toll on the mental state of patients and their loved ones. At Baxter Regional Medical Center, we go beyond treating the physical wounds. We provide our patients with access to physical therapy, counseling, and more. You and your loved ones deserve every tool available to push through the aftermath of a medical emergency, and that’s exactly what our hospital will provide.

Virtual Stroke Assistance in North Central Arkansas

Many of Arkansas’ rural hospitals without the support of a neurologist often forgo administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), as they lack the staff resources to accurately identify and manage tPA candidates. Further, the window of time needed to effectively administer tPA is often lost when stroke patients are transported to a better-equipped, remote hospital. As such, Arkansas’ stroke patients are missing out on a quality-of-life-saving drug that significantly improves the chances of recovery while reducing permanent, stroke-related disability and, quite possibly, mortality.

AR SAVES (Stroke Assistance through Virtual Emergency Support) has implemented a stroke management system specifically targeting these shortcomings by increasing access to subspecialty expertise through telemedicine technology, thereby engineering a coordinated assessment and care-based plan for Arkansas’ stroke patients. Baxter Regional Medical Center is proud to be one of 48 partnering AR SAVES sites and is equipped with telemedicine technology to access a vascular neurologist 24/7.
