Over the past 28 years, SHARE Foundation has been dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our community.  When SHARE Foundation was born, it was created as a joint venture between the Medical Center of South Arkansas (MCSA) and Triad.  Community Health Systems (CHS), a for-profit organization operating out of state, later acquired Triad’s ownership of the hospital, and a few years after, SHARE Foundation sold its 50% membership interest in MCSA to CHS.  Afterward, CHS was the complete owner of our hospital for 14 years.

A local consortium of community stakeholders deeply committed to El Dorado came together to create a new nonprofit organization that would eventually become our new hospital, South Arkansas Regional Hospital (SARH).  These stakeholders are SHARE Foundation, Murphy USA Charitable Foundation, Murphy Foundation, and AR Health Ventures, a nonprofit entity affiliated with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

After many long hours and hard work from our stakeholders, leaders, and partners, SARH officially opened its doors as a new nonprofit hospital on 7/1/2023.  Although many of our leaders, employees, and partners “felt” the change on day one, the community and patients may not have.  Many changes have already been made, and many other changes are being planned and executed behind the scenes.

We are excited about SHARE Foundation's partnership with the new South Arkansas Regional Hospital.  SHARE Foundation has come back full circle in its collaboration with our hospital, and we look forward to working together to fulfill our mission.
