About MANA Physicians and Clinics

Medical Associates of Northwest Arkansas (MANA) is an independent, physician-owned, and patient-centered group sharing one mission: improving quality of life by providing compassionate, comprehensive, quality healthcare. With 25 locations across Northwest Arkansas, MANA offers family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, women’s health, medical specialists, and diagnostic health services. 

Physician-Owned and Led

Our physicians focus on compassionate, quality patient care and retain a personal clinic environment. Physicians make decisions that shape excellent patient care in our practices.

By working together, MANA physicians can responsibly manage the costs associated with health care, improve our practice efficiencies, and enhance overall care for patients. A board of directors elected by the physicians from each department governs our patient-focused practices and policies. The board is advised and assisted by four principal leaders: Jason Wilson, Chief Executive Officer; Paula Maxwell, Chief Operating Officer; John Jordin, Chief Informational Officer; and Terry Hurt, Chief Financial Officer.

Supporting the Health of our Community

To support the health of our community, MANA physicians and staff give back to the community each month through the MANA Charitable Giving program. In addition, our team members have developed two more charitable programs that support the health of our community. Finally, several physicians and staff volunteer their time and expertise with local health programs.
