Arkansas Children’s Invests US$318 million for Clinical Expansion in USA
Arkansas Children's has announced plans to invest US$318 million in clinical growth as part of its strategic objective to provide Arkansas with exceptional child health care.
The project's goal is to improve access, outcomes, and on-campus experiences within the state's nationally renowned pediatric health system.
Construction at Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) in Little Rock and Arkansas Children's Northwest (ACNW) in Springdale will take place over the next eight years.
With the inclusion of an ambulatory surgery center, the system-wide expansion plan will increase bed capacity, alter inpatient and outpatient surgical techniques, restructure clinical spaces to foster multidisciplinary treatment, and provide a welcoming and accessible campus experience.
Polk Stanley Wilcox and Cromwell are the project's architects of record, while Nabholz will oversee construction.
The planning and engineering teams are finalizing designs for the additions, but they anticipate 265,000 more square feet of space and an additional renovation of more than 170,000 square feet.
The clinical expansion is set to begin later this summer.
