Physician Opportunities

A History of Growth and Service

In 1920, Cooper Clinic was founded on the sixth floor of First National Bank, in downtown Fort Smith. Dr. St. Cloud Cooper, for whom the clinic was named, and seven other physicians comprised the total staff. Patterned after the Mayo Clinic, our multi-specialty physician group was formed to provide improved patient care. That same purpose and corporate structure has continued for over 90 years.
