CABUN’s leaders made the decision to become a community health center in 1978 so that we could serve as a “safety net” for rural communities to ensure that no one who needs healthcare is denied access. We believe that healthy communities are the essence of American life.
The direction CABUN has taken in the last few years is a visible expression of the unswerving commitment we have to the Arkansas communities we serve. Our partnerships with local businesses and concerned citizen groups, as well as our participation in community development activities, speak to our ongoing commitment to provide affordable health for all in Arkansas.
