UAMS leases space in Children's Center for Health & Wellness under construction in Springdale; surgery center site still TBA

alt=""

In March, the University of Arkansas System board of trustees approved an $85 million project in Northwest Arkansas proposed by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

A 185,000-square-foot orthopedic and sports medicine facility will be built at a location to be determined. Speculation would logically lead to the area west of Interstate 49 along Gene George Boulevard near the Don Tyson Parkway exit in Springdale. It is a growing medical corridor but still has plenty of land available to develop.

Little Rock-based Arkansas Children’s and Northwest Arkansas-based Highlands Oncology Group have built multimillion-dollar facilities recently in that vicinity. A 76,000-square-foot medical office building for Little Rock-based USAble Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, is under construction in the same area. A five-story, 82,000-square-foot medical office building called Children’s Center for Health & Wellness also is under construction at 2575 S. Gene George Blvd. north of Arkansas Children’s Northwest.
