Arkansas Surgical Hospital Opens Specialty Clinic to Serve Hot Springs Area

HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE – In an effort to continue to meet the healthcare needs of Arkansas residents, physician-owned Arkansas Surgical Hospital announced it will open another Arkansas Surgical Hospital Specialty Clinic location in October 2020.

The new clinic, located at 122 Cordoba Center Drive in Hot Springs Village, closely follows the opening of the first Arkansas Surgical Hospital Specialty Clinic in Russellville.

The specialty clinics were founded to provide patients with access to specialists in one convenient place.  Professionals from Bowen Hefley Orthopedics, Martin Orthopedics, and Neurological Surgery Associates can be seen on a frequent and rotating basis, saving time and eliminating the cost of travel that may have prevented patients from receiving care previously.

“Our new clinics allow more patients to access specialty care in locations that are convenient for them,” said Brian Fowler, CEO of Arkansas Surgical Hospital.  “Now, residents of Arkansas’s smaller cities can more easily seek care for joint pain, back pain, and nerve disorders from some of the region’s most trusted healthcare experts.”

Arkansas Surgical Hospital Continues to Focus on the Safety of its Patients, Staff & Community

April 14, 2020 – A message from Brian Fowler, CEO of ASH speaking on behalf of the hospital on how we are meeting the healthcare needs of our patients and community.

April 5, 2020 – The physicians at Arkansas Surgical Hospital have been carefully evaluating each patient’s case to determine if their scheduled procedures can be safely postponed. Elective surgeries—procedures that can be postponed without causing harm to the patient—have been rescheduled or cancelled, while urgent surgeries are continuing.

“Urgent procedures are time-sensitive and can cause additional risk to the patient if delayed,” explained Brian Fowler, CEO of Arkansas Surgical Hospital. “These risks can include patient deficits, opioid addiction from continued use of medication to reduce pain, and emergency room visits during the COVID crisis. Our goal is to meet the needs of our community while addressing safety and care.”

The physicians at Arkansas Surgical Hospital use their clinical judgment and recommendations from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Arkansas Department of Health to determine whether to postpone or to continue with a procedure. The risk factors they must consider include intractable pain control issues, the possibility of permanent impairment with a lack of timely treatment, and the risk of injury from falling.

By treating patients who are at risk of falling, developing blood clots, or undergoing nerve damage, the hospital hopes to prevent injuries that would otherwise mean a trip to the emergency room.

“Reducing the number of visits to the ER prevents unnecessary exposure to COVID-19, reduces the load on overworked ER and ICU staff, and limits the use of essential emergency resources,” said Fowler. “We are adhering to recommendations and have reached out to the Arkansas Department of Health to ensure that we are doing everything possible to protect our patients during this time.”

Arkansas Surgical Hospital is committed to a disciplined focus on safety and the care and comfort of our patients.
