PARAGOULD, Ark. (AP) - A northern Arkansas hospital says it will open a new women’s clinic to fill the gap in coverage for prenatal and post-delivery care in Paragould.

Starting Monday, a new women’s clinic in Arkansas Methodist Medical Center will be open for patients. Hospital spokeswoman Shay Willis said Friday that the hospital had been exploring opening its own women’s clinic over the past week.

Dr. Paul Becton, whose private practice is housed in the hospital’s office building, faces felony charges of video voyeurism after police allegedly found several nude images of a woman on his cellphone. Officials with the Greene County Health Unit say Becton had been the only doctor in Greene County practicing in obstetrics and gynecology.
