Arkansas Heart Hospital Encore is a five-level greenfield hospital. The new facility includes a Surgery Department with two cardiac hybrid operating rooms and two general operating rooms and a full Emergency Department with 12 exam rooms, two trauma rooms, and a decontamination room. Clark completed this project on a fast-track schedule with early packages.
The 110,235 SF facility includes lobby/waiting, day patient clinic, cath labs, PACU, imaging, MRI, CT, PET Scan, x-ray, 53 private patient rooms with bariatric patient rooms (patient lifts), and isolation rooms with custom headwalls and footwalls.
The hospital also features pre-op, nuclear room, lab, pharmacy, green roof with rooftop terrace and planters, Intensive Cardiac Rehab (ICR) Clinic and Physical Therapy Rehab. The new hospital was originally built with two shell floors, which Clark also finished out, allowing the total number of patient rooms to increase to 53. As the second location in the Arkansas Heart Hospital system, this project will provide increased access to healthcare services for the surrounding community.
