Conway Regional Health System acquires Renaissance center

Conway Regional Health System announced last week that it acquired the Renaissance Women’s Center earlier this month.

Conway Regional Health System has acquired Renaissance Women’s Center, effective Aug. 3. The announcement brings together two organizations that are committed to providing comprehensive women’s services to Central Arkansas and the River Valley.  

As of Aug. 3, Conway Regional Health System will manage and oversee all operations of Renaissance Women’s Center. The Providers who currently practice and who will remain at the location include Michael Wood, MD; Courtney Sick, MD; and Megan Moix, APRN. Kala Slayton, MD, has joined the practice as of Aug. 10.   

No patient care or staffing changes are expected as a result of the transition. The staff and providers of the women’s center will join the staff of Conway Regional. 

“We are excited about this partnership with Conway Regional. This opportunity allows our clinic and Conway Regional to continue growing together to meet the needs of the communities we serve,” said Wood. “Our goal at the Renaissance Women’s Center is unchanged and that is to provide compassionate, personal attention to each patient through each phase of her life: preteen, adolescent, adulthood, pregnancy and menopause.” 

The 9,350-square-foot Renaissance Women’s Center is located at 2300 Robinson Ave., next door to the Conway Regional Medical Center campus. The center offers obstetrics, gynecological and in-office procedures with the physicians delivering babies and performing outpatient and inpatient surgical services at Conway Regional Medical Center. 

“Partnerships are what make our community successful and organization stronger,” said Matt Troup, president and CEO of Conway Regional Health System. “After a long-standing relationship with Renaissance Women’s Center and their physicians, the time was right for us to come together in a more formal way. Since its opening, RWC has taken great pride in the services they provide and reputation they’ve built over many years. We will endeavor to retain that pursuit of excellence and compassion. This clinic will be physician-led and we want them to be very engaged in its day-to-day operations. Partnerships and alignment can take many forms and employment is just one of the many ways we accomplish that end. We have been and will continue to be closely aligned with all the OB-Gyns in Conway.” 

When Wood opened the center in September 2011, he named it the Renaissance Women’s Center as a tribute to overcoming a debilitating nerve disorder that forced him to retire for six years. He told 501 LIFE Magazine, “I wanted something to signify my starting again.”
