Chicot Memorial Medical Center is a critical access facility that incorporates state-of-the-art procedures and equipment to care for patients.  An extensive offering of services and programs is available at the hospital.  Covenant Surgical Partners, headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, is a privately-held owner and operator of ambulatory surgery centers that decided in 2012 to seek out Community based Hospitals interested in providing interventional pain services to patients in rural communities.  The Program is directed towards improving the lifestyles of patients with chronic lower back pain, reducing the use of narcotics.

 Chicot Memorial Medical Center has a large catchment area and patient population that would otherwise have to travel great distance to receive professional treatment and quality health care for chronic lower back pain.  The Hospital and Covenant are pleased to bring this service to the Community, enhancing the quality of life for the service area.

 Covenant is in negotiations to provide this service to many other hospitals in various parts of the United States.
