About 100 people attended a blessing of and ribbon cutting for the new Mercy Clinic Primary Care-Pea Ridge on Wednesday.
The $4.1 million, 7,500-SF clinic at 200 Carr St. has a nurse practitioner and 14 examination rooms. It is part of Mercy’s $247 million expansion plan that will add seven clinics in the region and a new tower to its hospital in Rogers.
Dr. Steve Goss, president of Mercy Clinic, said the clinic also has room to house more providers as demand builds over time.
Dr. Matthew Jennings began seeing patients at the clinic today. He brings more than two decades of experience to his role there, including several years in family practice, emergency medicine and urgent care. Jennings has also held medical supervisory roles.
He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and earned his medical degree from Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. Jennings served as a combat surgeon and a family practice physician while on active duty, and he was awarded a Bronze Star for his service.
