Although the statewide mask mandate is no longer in effect, all visitors to any Arkansas Children’s facility are required to wear masks.In a continued effort to protect patient and team safety, visitor restrictions remain in place, and no child under the age of 18, other than the patient, is allowed inside any Arkansas Children’s facility.

We know you may feel anxious about visiting a hospital with your child during the COVID-19 crisis. We also know childhood illnesses and injuries won’t take a time-out due to social distancing. That’s why all Arkansas Children’s facilities are open and ready to serve you and your family. Our clinics are staffed 24/7 with doctors, nurses and staff who know kids best – all trained to deliver right-sized care for your child in a safe environment.
If you have an upcoming appointment with us, keep it! Your child’s health is critical, and the best way to keep your child on track is to keep your scheduled check-ups.
We have implemented several safeguards to ensure the highest level of safety for your child and our patients. We want to make sure you know what to expect upon your visit to any of our facilities.
Although the statewide mask mandate is no longer in effect, all visitors to any Arkansas Children's facility are required to wear masks. If you have cloth masks, please bring and wear them while you are here. If you do not have a mask, we will provide a new, unused mask at the door. If your child is under 2 years old, or cannot put on or remove a mask without any help, they should not wear a mask.
In an effort to keep all visitors and team members safe, we are taking a phased approach for reactivating our clinical services. Our outpatient clinics are in the process of resuming our clinical services either through in-person visits or through telehealth visits.
Our emergency departments have been and still are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Why is a pediatric emergency room different?
