Welcome to Daughters of Charity Services of Arkansas
Daughters of Charity Services of Arkansas is dedicated to Christian values in our service as we provide quality, holistic care to individuals and communities in southeast Arkansas.
In the late 1980s Daughters of Charity recognized the need for healthcare services in the Arkansas Delta, Lincoln County, and Desha County.
Our first medical clinic, St. Elizabeth Health Center, opened on December 3, 1990 with humble beginnings in the city of Gould, Arkansas (Lincoln County). The clinic was established in the remodeled city jail.
We acquired our second medical facility, DePaul Health Center in Dumas, Arkansas (Desha County) on August 10, 1992. In September 1998 we opened the wellness center in Gould to provide a state-of-the-art exercise facility for the residents of Gould and communities from across southeast Arkansas. We also acquired the dental practice of Charles Woodyard, whose staff added a much-needed component to our ministry work.
In February 2007 we moved our administrative office out of DePaul Health Center and into the newly renovated Adams Building on Main Street in Dumas.
At Daughters of Charity Services of Arkansas, we see and treat people of all ages.
