Healthstar was founded in 2000 by Dr. Kevin Hale. We are an expanding outpatient health care system of experienced family physicians organized for the sole purpose of delivering high quality, comprehensive, clinical and mental health care. HealthStar’s modern and innovative facilities are located around the Greater Hot Springs area, Glenwood, Malvern, and Mena.
We operate traditional family practice clinics, a house calls, and telehealth program for enhanced access to care, four school-based clinics, and two walk-in clinics that offer extended hours to meet the needs of our patients. Our patients also have access to pediatric providers, physical therapists, full-service diagnostic center (CT, MRI, ECHO, and Ultrasound), and central lab. Additionally, each of our family practice sites have a licensed behavioral health counselor imbedded inside the clinic for easy referrals, warm handoffs, and comprehensive physical and psychological care.
HealthStar is owned by fourteen family physicians. Our clinical team is made up of sixteen family physicians, one pediatrician, one physical therapist, a pharmacist, nurse practitioners, and licensed behavioral counselors for a total of over sixty providers. All providers are dedicated to bringing patients the best of primary care, pediatrics, geriatrics, women’s health, and psychological counseling services.

Aside from family medicine, HealthStar also provides practice management services for various providers that prefer to remain independent but need help with the business of health care. We are equipped to provide support to any specialty across the health care spectrum. Whether you are a new physician just getting started or you are looking to leave your current system or medical group, we can help. Get more information on our Practice Management services here.
HealthStar currently employs over 250 employees. In 2021, we had over 190,000 clinic visits and over 17,000 hospital visits. We have over 52,000 patients in all our clinics. Here at HealthStar, we value local partnerships and work very hard to fully integrate ourselves into each community we serve.
