Summit Medical Center, a 103-bed hospital in Van Buren, is now part of Fort Smith-based Sparks Health System and has been renamed Sparks Medical Center – Van Buren.
Summit and Sparks were previously “sister” facilities, both owned by publicly traded Community Health Systems Inc. of Franklin, Tennessee.
The rebranding effort with new signage will be completed in the coming weeks. Anthony Brooks, the interim CFO of Sparks Medical Center – Van Buren, said the new name is a strategic decision to spotlight the facility as an important part of Sparks Health System, which includes Sparks Regional Medical Center, Sparks Clinic, Sparks PremierCare physician-hospital organization, Sparks Home Health and the Marvin Altman Fitness Center.
