Chicot Memorial Medical Center’s History
The original hospital in Lake Village was the Lake Village Infirmary, located on South Cokley Street. The Lake Village Infirmary served the Lake Village area well for many years, but in the early 1960’s, the increasing need for a larger facility became more and more apparent and plans for a new county hospital were made. In 1964, the people of the county, in addition to making generous contributions, voted a revenue bond issue of almost a million dollars.
Architects for the 50-bed hospital were Wittenberg, DeLong and Davidson of Little Rock, Arkansas. The Project was started under the late County Judge, H. L. Locke and completed under Judge James R. Burchfield and placed in operation on October 30, 1967.
In 1975, thirty more beds were added, making a total of 80 beds. The expansion project was completed December 6, 1976. It was paid for with revenue bonds, which were paid from the hospital operations.
A .6 mill tax was increased in 1991, by a positive vote from Chicot County citizens to 1 mill in support of ongoing maintenance for CMMC.
On March 1, 2004, construction started on a new 45,000 square foot patient care area addition for CMMC to continue to provide the quality care that we have been known for to our communities. This latest patient care addition was occupied February 15, 2006.
