Give a brief history of your business: A grant was written for funding and 1st Choice Healthcare, was incorporated in 1992. The Corning clinic opened on March 7, 1994. An expansion site was approved and the Pocahontas Clinic was established and opened on March 1, 2000. On March 14, 2005, the the Walnut Ridge site was established and moved to a brand new facility in April 2013. In 2014, a fourth location was added in Ash Flat, Arkansas. This also brought the re-branding of Corning Area Healthcare, Inc. to 1st Choice Healthcare. Changing the corporate name was necessary because of the expansion of our health care services into new counties.
