Arkansas Children’s will embark on a clinical expansion later this summer as part of its strategic plan to deliver child health in Arkansas. The project focuses on delivering better access, outcomes and improved on-campus experiences at the state’s pediatric health system. 

The growth will happen over the next eight years and will require nearly $318 million in investment for construction at Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) in Little Rock and Arkansas Children’s Northwest (ACNW) in Springdale. The system-wide expansion plan will expand bed capacity, transform inpatient and outpatient surgical approaches with the addition of an ambulatory surgery center, redesign clinical spaces to promote multidisciplinary care and create an inviting and accessible campus experience. 

Polk Stanley Wilcox and Cromwell are the architects of record and Nabholz will serve as the construction manager for the project. 

Planning and engineering teams are finalizing proposals for the enhancements but estimate 265,000 new square feet of facilities and an additional renovation that spans more than 170,000 square feet. 

Detailed schematics will be shared in the fall.
