Pediatrics Plus has scheduled a grand opening for 11:30 a.m. Thursday at its new 31,000-SF, $7.2 million facility at 1900 Aldersgate Road in Little Rock.
The facility, which Arkansas Business first reported in May, will serve more than 400 special needs children and their families.
The facility "will provide physical, occupational and speech therapy, integrated preschool, early intervention services and family support," the company said in a news release.
The building and its grounds will be home to 11 classrooms, a commercial kitchen, a library, a nurse's office, an education and training room, 15,000 SF of therapy space and two playgrounds. The company said it will create 50 new jobs.
Gov. Mike Beebe, along with Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola and Pediatrics Plus owners Amy and Todd Denton, are scheduled to attend.
Pediatrics Plus - with facilities in Russellville, Conway, North Little Rock and Little Rock - provides physical, occupational and speech therapy to children and adults up to 21. It also provides preschool services to children up to 6.
