SPRINGDALE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is building a 115,00-square-foot, $85 million Health Orthopedics & Sports Performance Center on 31 acres south of Arkansas Children’s Northwest, just west of Interstate 49.

Part of what’s informally known as the Springdale Care Corridor, total cost of the development – including land – is estimated at $109.6 million.

The future facility, which is expected to be completed in mid-2025, will be home to all UAMS Health orthopedic clinics in Northwest Arkansas, along with sports performance, therapy and MRI. The new campus will include 20 exam rooms, up to six operating rooms and eight outpatient recovery beds where patients can stay for up to 23 hours if needed.

Marion Blackwell Architects of Fayetteville, Ark. designed the two-story building with input from Davis Stokes Collaborative Architects P.C.

Nabholz Construction of Conway, Ark. is the general contractor.

Headquartered in Little Rock, Ark., UAMS is the state’s only comprehensive academic medical center. It established a Northwest Arkansas regional campus in 2007 in the former 323,510-square-foot Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville, Ark.
