Leadership across the Infirmary manned the entrances on August 16 to greet coworkers with individual packets of Five Gum to celebrate the U.S. News and World Report ranking results. The Infirmary was named the No. 1 hospital in Arkansas for 2017-18 and ranked as high-performing in seven categories: heart bypass surgery, heart failure, abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic valve surgery, colon cancer surgery, hip replacement and knee replacement. This was the fifth year in a row for celebrating this No. 1 status.
