The Little Red River From A Buyers Perspective
Part Eight: The Best Place For You
I was with a client recently looking at riverfront property, talking about the usual things; good places to fish, wadable and dockable waters, ease of river access, the distance to the hospital...........What??????????
It never occurred to me that the time it takes to get to the hospital would be a consideration for picking the perfect spot on the river. Then it occurred to me what a first class hospital we have here in the Baptist Medical Health Center-Heber Springs.
The hospital moved into a new 60,000 square foot facility in June of 2007. The new facility includes an expanded ER, OR, outpatient clinic and in-house MRI services. Ed Lacy, vice-president and hospital administrator is especially proud of the new eICU which provides 24-hour access via two-way interactive technology to ICU physicians and nurses in Little Rock who assist with patient care in our hospital's ICU.
If you are a fisherman and a heart patient you have to be impressed with that info. Plus, if you are as far from town as Lobo Landing, and have the big one, you are only seven miles and less than nine minutes to the hospital. If you are fishing Cow or Winkley Shoals, you are only a couple of minutes away.
All of this makes Heber Springs a great place to live. Why don't you come live it with us?
