The Alma and Van Buren Chambers of Commerce hosted an open house at the new Care Plus Medical Clinic in Alma Tuesday.

Dr. Chris Bell, a Crawford County native who grew up in Van Buren, is heading up the new clinic.

 “We have a really high need for family physicians, said Pat Sears with Summit and Sparks clinics. “We have a growing community here in Crawford County and Alma. There is a shortage of family physicians in Arkansas and across the nation, particularly in our area.  So he is fulfilling a real community need that we have.”

The clinic on Heather Lane in Alma is open weekdays from 8 a.m. – 5p.m. Dr. Bell is accepting new patients, as well as walk-ins.
