About Our Employees

Jefferson Regional Medical Center has been in existence for over a century. Beginning as Davis Hospital, Jefferson Regional was created to meet the healthcare needs of Southeast Arkansas and exists today with the same purpose. The people of Southeast Arkansas are resilient, caring and strong, and Jefferson Regional employees mirror the community they serve. The individuals who work at Jefferson Regional each have a story to tell and their passion, kindness and dedication make Jefferson Regional’s vision come to life.

Here are their stories:

“Jefferson Regional has afforded me the opportunity to grow and develop in many different areas. To me, you can never have enough experience in various aspects of your profession. When you do, I think you’re a more valuable resource to whatever facility or whatever organization you belong to. I absolutely enjoy the people that I work with. Ever since I’ve been at Jefferson Regional, I’ve never felt like I didn’t have support. The biggest thing that I’ve felt at Jefferson Regional is if you come to work and you do your best to do a good job and you show initiative, you have the opportunity to grow and do new things. I have never felt hindered or restrained from being able to try something new. All I can do is count my blessings every day.”

Nursing Application Systems Analyst

“I like that every day is a new day. I like that you show up and are in the business of getting people better. You get to see improvement, and you can drive that improvement.

We’re good on the science here, but this is the best attitude group of people that you could work with. We don’t let people get down. We don’t let people beat themselves up or other people up. Like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to rehab a person. Everybody’s sold into it.

Being down is good. Grieving is a part of the process, and I’ll take anybody aside and let them grieve. If somebody’s lost a leg or they’ve lost use of their arm, they deserve the right to grieve. Don’t take that away from them. But don’t let it be in a room full of people trying to be up.

One of the things we pride ourselves on in our unit is our discharge to home is very high compared to the rest of the country. We’re not just taking people and treating them and sending them to the nursing home. Our goal is to get them back to the home, and I think that’s kind of another ‘it takes a village’ issue. That’s between the doctors, the nurses, the staff, the family, the patient and anybody involved. Everybody’s goal is to get them out of the medical establishment and into their home. That’s something that I think that our people down here are very proud of.”

You get the best care right here in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
