NORTH LITTLE ROCK - Baptist Health officially dedicated its new Baptist Health Medical Office Building on Monday, Jan. 13, in North Little Rock. Governor Asa Hutchinson was on hand to help Baptist Health President and CEO Troy Wells and other local dignitaries cut the ribbon on the four-story 160,000-square-foot building which houses the Baptist Health-University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Medical Education Program.

The Baptist Health-UAMS Medical Education Program is a joint venture with UAMS that started with 24 residents in the specialties of family medicine and internal medicine with plans to expand and ultimately provide up to 120 or more new residency opportunities in the state.

Baptist Health Internal Medicine Clinic and Baptist Health Family Medicine Residency Clinic are located in the building. These new clinics serve as new points of access for the North Little Rock community and provide opportunities for the residents to practice in a clinical setting. The facility features state-of-the-art equipment, conference rooms, a resident lounge, shower facilities, an exercise room, a kitchenette and patient care clinical areas. In addition, the new building will house other physician clinics, as well as lab and x-ray.

Lewis Architects and Engineers served as the architect on the $32 million project. The engineering firm was Petit and Petit while the general contractor was CDI Contractors.
