Arkansas Urology has begun work on a new outpatient surgery center in Little Rock. The single-story, 12,467-square- foot center represents a nearly $6 million investment by Arkansas Urology in central Arkansas’ healthcare community. The surgery center is expected to open by October 2017.
The new center will provide Arkansas Urology patients with a state-of- the-art facility equipped with the latest technology. All outpatient procedures currently being performed at Arkansas Urology will take place in the new surgery center along with various new procedures to treat BPH, overactive bladder and prostate cancer, as well as other urological conditions.
“With the surgery center being located at our central clinic campus, patients from throughout our service area will have their surgeon-physicians and their staffs readily accessible, which will increase efficiency, reduce costs and provide better patient outcomes,” said E. Scot Davis, CEO at Arkansas Urology. “This integrated approach to addressing urological issues will enhance the already exceptional service our patients have come to expect from our staff and providers.”
The new building will house two 450+-square- foot operating rooms and four procedure rooms and will be an accredited facility to ensure safety and quality standards. The building is designed to accommodate future expansions.
“The physicians of Arkansas Urology are committed to providing the latest technology and innovative processes to enhance the quality of life for our patients,” said Dr. Tim Langford, president of Arkansas Urology. “We are honored to be able to bring this state-of- the-art facility to the residents of central Arkansas and will continue our long history of exceptional care to the patients we serve.”
