Two New Baptist Health Urgent Care Locations Opening in Fort Smith, Van Buren

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Baptist Health Urgent Care has announced it will open two new locations later this summer in Fort Smith and Van Buren. 

The location in Fort Smith is scheduled to open in late July and will be located in the Northside area on Rogers Avenue, across from Walgreens. In August, a center in Van Buren will open on Fayetteville Road, across from McDonald’s. 

 “While Baptist Health Urgent Care already has centers in Fort Smith on Rogers Avenue and South Zero Street, there is a need for walk-in urgent and family care on the Northside,” said Mike Dupuis, Urgent Team Division Vice President for Baptist Health Urgent Care. “The location in Van Buren will also help meet the urgent and family care needs of patients and their family in this community. Our continued goal continues to be to provide the community with affordable, quality walk-in urgent care, delivered by exceptional and compassionate health teams.”

The centers are open seven days a week and offer evening hours during the work week. For added convenience, walk-ins are welcome or can plan a same or next day visit online with Hold My Spot® or reserve a telemedicine visit.
