Aug 12, 2022

St. Bernards Healthcare announced that Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Specialist Riley Pace, M.D. has joined the St. Bernards Clopton Clinic medical team.

Dr. Pace arrives at St. Bernards after completing an Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Internship and Residency with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis, his hometown. He earned his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) in 2018, also from UTHSC. Dr. Pace has family from the Randolph County area, and he now joins a team of more than 20 multi-specialty healthcare providers close to them.

“Clopton Clinic has served Northeast Arkansas for nearly six decades,” Dr. Pace said. “I hope to build upon the strong foundation already laid here.”

Dr. Pace’s arrival will only strengthen the care options at St. Bernards Clopton Clinic, said Ben Owens, Jr., M.D., Internal Medicine Specialist.

“Access to care remains a critical component of what we do,” Dr. Owens said. “Dr. Pace’s family is from this area, and he understands the specific challenges our patients face each day. He’ll prove an incredible addition to St. Bernards as a whole.”

Dr. Pace holds professional memberships with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American/Tennessee Medical Association, the Harvey Team Committee at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and Phi Chi Medical Fraternity. In his spare time, he enjoys watching and attending sporting events, including the Memphis Grizzlies and Arkansas Razorbacks, traveling and spending time with family. He lives in Jonesboro with his wife, Haley.
