Four years after breaking ground, Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) opened the doors to the new South Wing on June 13, 2012. The South Wing is a 258,000-square foot patient facility that brings a new standard of care to families in Arkansas. It debuts an entirely new emergency department, updated intensive care units for cardiovascular and neonatal patients and five new outpatient clinics.
The South Wing adds 54 inpatient beds, allowing ACH to accommodate 370 overnight patients. Planning for the $121 million facility began in 2005, and Nabholz, Inc. started construction in 2008. The facility, designed by Cromwell Architects, is being paid for with a combination of cash reserves, philanthropic donations and bonds issued in 2009.
Units & Clinics in the South Wing
The South Wing expansion also outfits several existing programs with entirely new spaces including:
Other key named spaces in the South Wing include the Circle of Friends Hematology-Oncology Clinic, Alton L. Miles Healing Garden, Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Dental Clinic, Willard and Pat Walker Charitable Foundation Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic, Arkansas Children's Hospital Auxiliary Infant Toddler Unit and the Roy and Christine Sturgis Concourse.
Families will find that many of the clinics their children regularly attend are in the South Wing. Audiology, ENT, Neurology, Cancer and Blood Disorders, Dental and Eye Clinics are among those outpatient services in the facility.
