The Daughters of Charity Services of Arkansas, DCSA will receive part of a $2 million grant to help with technical assistance in the areas of finance, operations, technology, and quality improvement.
DCSA is one of six hospitals in four Delta region states to receive the aid. The Health Resources and Services Administration, HRSA, and the Delta Regional Authority collaborated on the project.
“We are looking forward to working with the DRA on this important program,” HRSA administrator George Sigounas said. “This support will help these hospitals strengthen their health care systems and improve health outcomes in the Delta Region.”
DCSA operates two rural health clinics and one wellness center. It serves Desha, Drew, Chicot counties. In September 2017, HRSA awarded $2 million to the National Rural Health Resource Center to provide technical assistance to hospitals in Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Others receiving the assistance include:
Pemiscot County Memorial Hospital in Hayti, Missouri; Iron County Hospital in Pilot Knob, Missouri; Tippah County Hospital in Ripley in Mississippi; Sharkey-Issaquena Community Hospital, Mississippi; Natchitoches Regional Medical Center, Louisiana.
