Arkansas Children's Hospital Northwest is expanding its staff and adding additional resources in order to make health care more accessible to the youth of NWA.
The hospital recently added a pediatric cardiologist and pediatric neurologist, a total of two each. The region has seen a growing need for pediatric cardiology and neurology, which often leads to patients traveling out-of-state to receive treatment.
Children's Northwest will move its primary care services such as general preventive care into one floor of a new medical office building to free up space for more services at the hospital. -Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
The hospital will also collaborate with the UAMS Orthopedics Northwest to start a pediatric sports medicine program for high school athletes.
