It has been a long time coming, North Little Rock Mayor Terry Hartwick said.
“We have been working with Baptist on this clinic since early January 2021, right after I took office,” Hartwick said. “Growing up in Rose City, I remember being treated at a local clinic for a potential serious injury as a young child. Every citizen in North Little Rock should have access to great health care.”
The facility will be designed by North Little Rock’s Taggart Architects and the builder will be Maumelle’s Alessi Keyes Construction.
Construction will start this fall with an estimated timeline to completion of 14 months. The project will cost $5 million and be a total of 5,000 square feet.
“In addition to advancing Baptist Health's mission of providing quality services with Christian compassion, we believe this will help improve health care access for residents in the Rose City neighborhood so they can get the care they need closer to home,” said Troy Wells, President and CEO of Baptist Health.
