Baptist Health Family Clinic-Lonoke Now Open, Accepting Patients

LONOKE, Ark. – Baptist Health Family Clinic-Lonoke is now providing an extensive range of medical services for the entire family at 757 SE Front St. in Lonoke.

Les Anderson, MD; Elton Cleveland, MD; and Alexis Van Houten, APRN, as well as residents of Baptist Health-University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Medical Education Program make up the clinic’s team of providers.

Dr. Anderson, a native of Lonoke, has practiced medicine for nearly 50 years in the area. He first joined Baptist Health with his own family practice in Lonoke in the 1980s before relocating to another clinic and rejoining the health care system this fall. Dr. Anderson earned his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

“I believe in compassionate care and trying to make a difference in the lives of patients in rural communities,” Dr. Anderson said.

Dr. Cleveland was a chief resident and then became faculty at UAMS, where he also completed his medical education. He additionally is associate program director for family medicine residency training as part of the Baptist Health-UAMS Medical Education Program.

Van Houten received her medical education from the Chamberlain College of Nursing.

“In my opinion, care should be tailored to contribute to healing of the body, mind, and spirit and I plan to develop care plans accordingly for my patients,” she said. “As a family practice provider, I desire to care for families and be there for all phases of life for many generations to come.”

Baptist Health Family Clinic-Lonoke is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the clinic or to schedule an appointment, visit or call Baptist Health HealthLine at 1-888-BAPTIST.
