BENTONVILLE -- Mercy's newest clinic in Bentonville offers four primary care providers in the thriving North Walton Boulevard Corridor Enhancement area that is less than a mile from four public schools.
Mercy held a blessing and ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of Mercy Clinic Primary Care - Walton Boulevard in early October.
The clinic's providers - Dr. Jim Byrum, Dr. Kim Chapman, Dr. Robert Holder and advanced practice nurse Meredith Finley - offer family medicine, pediatrics and internal medicine.
The clinic is among seven Mercy will open as part of a $277 million expansion in the region that includes the addition of a seven-story tower to the Rogers hospital.
Mercy Clinic President Dr. Steve Goss said the area of north Bentonville is growing quickly and has a need for more primary care physicians. In researching its Community Presence Plan, Mercy found that residents prefer care close to where they live and work.
Mercy's investment in the site and building totals $4.1 million.
The clinic is Mercy's sixth location in Bentonville.
