This state-of-the-art facility is a general acute-care hospital located in Bryant, Arkansas. The facility is approximately 87,985 square feet in size and includes 24 private inpatient beds, including 8 of which that are critical care beds, 16 beds in a full-service emergency room, 2 cardiac catheterization labs, 2 operating rooms, a post-anesthesia care unit, endoscopy suite, intensive cardiac rehabilitation, an outpatient clinic, and radiology imaging with MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, x-ray, and cardiac PET.
The facility is designed with centralized nursing stations in each of the patient care areas to provide exclusively patient-focused care. The design of the facility promotes staff efficiency by minimizing the distance between frequently used spaces. The location of support services allow sharing by adjacent functional areas, minimizing the risk of infection and positively impacting patient flow.
The facility is constructed in compliance with regulations of Arkansas State Department of Health, CMS, and plan to apply for accreditation by The Joint Commission.
In a state where the prevalence of coronary artery disease, obesity, and diabetes are within the top five states of every published report, it is important to increase access and convenience to Arkansans. This hospital not only increases access, but it also does so with the lowest cost and highest quality of care. The rehabilitation the hospital provides, too, will decrease the likelihood of future cardiac events and make for a healthier community.
The master plan for the campus includes a medical office building to include a restaurant with patio seating connecting the building with the hospital, as well as a future hospital building expansion as a second phase covering the therapeutic roof terrace with 3-stories of expansions to the upper floors, and a parking deck to serve both buildings and potential future buildings on the Heart Hospital campus.
