Mark Cater was honored as Drew Memorial Hospital’s Health Hero for the Month on February for his eternal positive attitude and willingness to help anyone who is in need.
Mark consistently carries Drew Memorial’s Mission, Vision and Values with a smile and a gentle nature. We are proud to have him on our team.
Drew Memorial Hospital would like to thank everyone who helped participate in the THV11/AR Foodbank cereal drive. DMH’s mission is to help improve the health and nutrition of the people in the community. This cereal drive helped feed many hungry Arkansans in our area, by collecting well over 200 boces of cereal for Drew County youngsters..
Pictured left to right: Brittany Sears, Quality/Public Relations Coordinator, Tom Brannon, THV11 Host, Debbie Rush, Marketing Director. DMH was featured on Channel 11 with other organizations who participated. DMH hopes to raise even more for the cereal drive next year.
The Summer Cereal Drive provides hungry Arkansans with non-perishable breakfast items that are both nutritious and kid friendly. Every year, “THV11” helps fight hunger in Arkansas in the summer months and this year Drew Memorial Hospital will be helping them.
There will be a box in the front entrance of the hospital to drop the breakfast items into. Anyone that would like to help with this cause can bring items and drop them off in DMH’s collection box.
Drew Memorial Hospital announces that it will offer a Basic CPR training class, if there are enough people interested. This will not be the class for health industry workers. If you are interested in learning basic CPR,

Father’s Day is a celebration of fatherhood and male parenting. Father’s Day is celebrated on a variety of date’s worldwide and typically involves gift-giving, special dinners to fathers, and family gatherings. Also, remembering what our fathers taught us, both good and not so good. We usually tell special stories about our fathers, bringing to mind, why we love them so very much.
As you make plans to honor your father, stepfather, or forefathers; let’s all pause for a moment and think about what your father has done for you or is currently doing, in his role as a father. And all fathers, you need to think about your role too. Fathers play a very important role in the development and lives of their children. They are best friends, mentors, coaches, protectors; typically providing mental, physical, spiritual and financial support. A father influences the shape and direction of a child’s character and values by giving respect, care, love, discipline, encouragement, guidance, being there to just talk to, ask a question and leading through example.

I was thinking the other day about how everyone seems to want a “Business Card”. Many of us have one, serving to identify us, by providing our name, title, e-mail address and phone number, as a way to “connect” with us. (more…)
Just because diet soda is low in calories doesn’t mean it can’t lead to weight gain.
It may have only 5 or fewer calories per serving, but emerging research suggests that consuming sugary-tasting beverages-even if they’re artificially sweetened-may lead to a high preference for sweetness overall. That means sweeter (and more caloric) cereal, bread, dessert-everything. Considering there are 15 calories in every teaspoon of sugar, that’s not good news if you’re watching your weight.
