LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —
Arkansas Children’s Hospital opened a new clinic in Southwest Little Rock this week.
The more than 11,000-square-foot building will have 15 clinic rooms, a lab and an x-ray room.
The clinic will also have a bilingual staff and will provide services from the USDA’s Women, Infants and Children program.
Hospital officials say Arkansas is one of the worst states in the country when it comes to child health and well being, something they are hoping this clinic will help change.
“The time has come to change our story, to figure out how we can get out into our communities more directly so we can change the trajectory of health and well-being for the children of Arkansas,” said Marcy Doderer, the CEO of Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
The new clinic is located on Dailey Drive and will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
