(LITTLE ROCK, AR) October 4, 2018 —
Arkansas Mutual has elected Little Rock Surgeon Chris Cate, M.D., to its board of directors. Cate has been certified by the American Board of Surgery since 1989 and is currently a managing partner at The Surgical Clinic of Central Arkansas, the state’s oldest and largest surgical clinic. He formerly served as chief of staff and chief of surgery for Baptist Health, the fifth largest employer in the state of Arkansas with more than 9,000 employees.

“Arkansas Mutual is excited to have Dr. Chris Cate join the physician leadership team on our board of directors,” said Corey Little, president of Arkansas Mutual Insurance Company. “In addition to being a sought-after surgeon, he is considered a servant leader in the medical community.”
