Broken bones, bronchitis, and back pain are no match for West Memphis medical care professionals. The city is the proud home of Crittenden Regional Hospital. It is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JHACO), so you know it is healthcare you can trust. The 152-bed facility is not the only option for treatment, however; there are also numerous clinics serving the city for minor injuries and major illnesses. It is a good feeling to know that both simple and advanced professional care are easily accessible no matter when you need help.
No Famine, Just Feast
Restaurants are a delicious mix of casual and elegant in West Memphis, with a whole lot of everything in-between. World-class barbeque platters piled high with savory meat and all the trimmings are available at Ray's World Famous Bar-B Que. The Iron Skillet may be a truck-stop restaurant, but it serves one of the best sausage gravy and biscuit breakfasts around. You can get Sicilian-style pizza at Sicily’s with the crust cooked just right and plenty of toppings. Of course, the city has its share of Southern cooking, from grits to a hearty pork chop dinner at New Earlean's Divine Cuisine.
A Day in the Park
