Mainline Health Systems Inc. (MHSI) has been awarded a Maternal Health grant for a grand total of $2,000,000.00. The grant will be used to create accessible maternal health care services that include in-home visit teams (Maternal Infant Health Program), telehealth access to maternal fetal medicine, and specialty care for at-risk pregnancies.
It will allow MHSI to expand into more areas throughout Southeast Arkansas that lack maternal health resources. Our goal is to reduce maternal health disparities in the rural areas that we serve. We will focus on prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum care. MHSI will be with the patient every step of the way, as they embark on their journey to motherhood.
The greatest access barrier is the lack of maternal health care services in Southeast Arkansas. There is a lack of clinical services, effective care models, and continuity of care. MHSI intends to fill these gaps by offering support and linguistically and culturally appropriate care coordination, intervention services during pregnancy and infancy, and overall improving health outcomes for mother and infant.
In 2022, MHSI updated the Mainline Health Monticello Clinic and added The Women’s Clinic to offer OB/GYN services. We currently have two full-time OB/GYN physicians, two specialized women’s health nurse practitioners, and a whole team dedicated to women’s health. We just opened four new satellite locations, and plan to expand more in the future. MHSI is proud to serve our communities and give women and infants access to the care they deserve and need.
We are fully dedicated to our promise, “Compassionate Professionals, Highest Quality Care.” To shed some light on one of our compassionate professionals, when asked about how she felt about receiving the grant, Dr. Constance Chapman replied, "I'm excited to see how these funds will extend our reach and enhance our ability to care for the women of Southeast Arkansas." Dr. Chapman, MD, MPH, MS, OB/GYN is one of our women’s health providers at our Monticello location.
