Arkansas Children’s Hospital plans to build new hospital campus in Springdale


Arkansas Children's Hospital announced plans to build a new hospital campus in Springdale.


The campus will be built on 37 acres donated by David and Cathy (George) Evans, Gary and Robin George and their families. The Springdale campus is part of ACH's broader plan to expand pediatric services across Arkansas.

The first step in improving access to care was marked by the arrival of two new Angel One helicopters earlier this summer. The second step in developing the new ACH statewide system is the planning of a 24-bed pediatric hospital on the campus in Springdale, Arkansas. ACH will detail additional plans for expanded services across Arkansas throughout the coming months.

The state-of-the-art hospital will sit on a 37-acre campus located on I-49 between Don Tyson Parkway and Highway 412, bordered by S. 56th Street and Watkins Avenue across the street from Arvest Ballpark.

The proposed 225,000-square-foot facility will include:

  • • 24 inpatient beds
  • • Emergency Department/Urgent Care Center with 21 exam rooms
  • • 30 Clinic exam rooms
  • • Five Operating rooms
  • • Imaging capabilities (MRI, CT and routine x-ray)
  • • Diagnostic services (infusion, PFT, EEG, echo, neurophysiology, audiology, rehabilitation)
  • • Helipad with refueling station

"This project represents an estimated investment of $184 million over the next five years," said Dr. Robert Steele, Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
