$68.5M spine, orthopedic hospital slated for Arkansas

Alan Condon -  

UAMS Orthopaedic & Spine hospital in Little Rock, Ark., is one of two major construction projects that the health system expects to complete within the next 18 months, Arkansas Business reports.

The 158,000-square-foot musculoskeletal hospital, which will cost $68.5 million to build, is set to open in March 2023. It will comprise operating rooms, patient rooms and offices as well as space for the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences' orthopedic trauma, orthopedic oncology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation programs.

The expansion reflects the growth of the UAMS orthopedic program as well as the research and education provided by the UAMS Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute, according to the health system.

UAMS also plans to open a $56 million radiation oncology center in June 2023.
