CHI St. Vincent Infirmary, now part of CommonSpirit Health formed between Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and Dignity Health in early 2019, is proud to be the first hospital in Arkansas to achieve Magnet designation and our redesignation for our continued commitment to nursing excellence and patient care.
Many of our co-workers call CHI St. Vincent their home and their team family. As we look forward, we have established an empowering environment for CHI St. Vincent co-workers where professional development is encouraged and supported.
