NORTH LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS — In our continued effort to meet the healthcare needs of Arkansas residents, physician-owned Arkansas Surgical Hospital announced a construction project that will add two additional operating rooms to the hospital’s facility.
The project will add 4,590 square feet to the current campus and bring the total number of operating rooms to 13. Additionally, renovations will be made in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit, adding three more recovery beds.
This project, which began in February, is expected to be completed by the beginning of October.
“This expansion will allow more patients to access the specialty care provided at Arkansas Surgical Hospital,” said Brian Fowler, CEO of Arkansas Surgical Hospital. “With the addition of five surgeons in 2020, more operating and recovery space was needed and this growth allows us to continue to serve the communities throughout Arkansas.”
